Short Illness; Campus Mourns At 
Passing Of Great Benefactress 


Donor Of Dorm 
Opened In '58 

Mrs. Jane Coleman Pickard, wife 
Of the late Frederick William 
Pickard '94, died at her home 
Monday in Greenville, Delaware, 
after a short illness. Funeral 
services for this long-time friend 
of the College will be Friday morn- 
ing in Christ Church, Wilmington, 
and interment will be in Keene 
Valley, New York. 

In speaking of Mrs. Pickard, 
President James S. Coles said: 
"The news of Mrs. Frederick Wil- 
liam Pickard's death brings sor- 
row to us at the College and to 
Bowdoin men everywhere. She 
was a wonderful and vital person, 
unselfish, and her life was filled 
with thought for others." 

Mrs. Pickard, who was the donor 
of the College's newest dormitory, 
Coleman Hall, was last on the 
campus for the dedication cere- 
monies of that building in June, 
1958. At that time a plaque was 
unveiled in Coleman Hall reading 
"That the boys who live in this 
house will have a happy memory 
of it all their lives is the wish of 
their friend." 

Jane Alice Coleman Pickard was 
born in Cleveland, Ohio on Sep- 
tember 28, 1873, the daughter of 
John Barnes Coleman and Alice 
Morris Coleman. Mr. Coleman 
was Treasurer, General Manager 
and later President of the Orient- 
al Powder Company in Portland, 
Maine. He retired in 1906, and 
lived in Falmouth Foreside until 
his death in 1932. 

On October 4, 1899, Jane Alice 
Coleman married Frederick Wil- 
liam Pickard '94. Their son John 
Coleman Pickard '22 is a member 
of the Board of Overseers. 

The Pickard family has been the 
greatest benefactor of the College. 
Mr. Pickard gave the Pickard Ath- 
letic Field and its endowment, the 
Pickard Theater in Memorial Hall, 
the Charles Weston Pickard Pro- 
fessorships of Chemistry, and the 
Pickard Book Fund for the Li- 
brary. He also contributed gener- 
ously to the Sesquicentennial 
Fund. With Mrs. Pickard he gave 
the Pickard Field HoUse. Mrs. 
Pickard contributed- generously to 
th» construction of the Arena, and 
through the Society of Bowdoin 
Women, gave the College a com- 
plete silver service embossed with 
the seal of the College. 

Frederick Pickard was an Over- 
seer from 1923 to 1928, and a Trus- 
tee from 1928 to 1952. In 1933 he 
was honored with Hie degree of 
LL.D. President Sills' inscription 
read: "Frederick William Pickard, 
of the Class of 1894, Trustee of 
the College; expert angler; Vice 
President of the DuPont Company; 
whose career in business has been 
marked by brilliance and industry 
and by continued interest in good 
books and good art; member of a 
notable Bowdoin family, whose 
filial piety united with loyal af- 
fection for the College is recorded 
in Pickard Field, in wise provision 
for more practical instruction in 
modern languages, in many other 
gifts and above all in interested 
personal service." 

President Sills had this to say 
of Frederick W. Pickard's gift up- 
on his death: "The magnificent 
legacy of Frederick W. Pickard, 
amounting to $800,000 (s one of the 
largest and most important that 
the college has ever received in 
these days when such support is 
not common, is very enhearten-

Interfraternity Sing 
Tonight, Tomorrow 

Last November a proposal was 
made by a faculty member to the 
Blanket Tax Committee to enlarge 
the proportion of student member- 
ship in an effort to turn over more 
responsibility to students. This pror 
posal was referred to a sug-com 
mittee of two students and four 
faculty members. They consider- 
ed the proposal for two months, 
and in February they submitted a 
report to the full committee in 
which they recommended the fol->

Case Speaks 
On Heritage 

On Friday night at 8:30 Sana- 
tor Clifford P. Case of New Jersey, 

This evening and tomorrow eve- 
ning; Wednesday, April 15 and 
Thursday, April 16; the annual 
Bowdoin Interfraternity Sing will 
be held at the Pickard Theater. 
This long-rehearsed and long- 
awaited event will start promptly 
at 7:00 both evenings: and with 
competition as stiff and enthusias- 
tic as it is this, year, a very ex- 
cellent performance is expected by 

As in the past, all fraternities 
will sing in the Wednesday Prelim- 
inaries, from which the top six 
selected will enter the more ex- 
acting Thursday Finals. 

Judging this year will be based 
upon a rompetcnt 25 point system. 
The Judges will be complemented 
by the aid of a computer from the 
bursars office to insure the high- 
est possible accuracy in the aver- 
aging of their results. 

According to this system of 
judging, up to 5 points may be 
given in each of the following five 
categories: Diction, Tone Quality, 
Pitch or Intonation, Interpreta- 
tion, and Ensemble. Using 3 as an 
average, anything below 3 is pro- 
gressively poorer, and anything 
above 3 is progressively better; 5 
is perfect, and even decimals or 
fractions may make the deciding 
difference in some cases. 

After a computer averages the 
grades, the judges will discuss the 
two top averages, and a majority 
vote will decide the winner. The 
Preliminary judges for this eve- 
ning are: Miss Julie Messier, Mr. 
William D. Shipman, and Mr. Ron- 
ald Hurle. The judges for the Fin- 
als tomorrow evening, will be: 
Miss Ruth King, a Smith College 
Choral Director, Mr. Marshall Bry- 
ant, the Westbrook Junior College 
Music Director; and Miss Anna 
Crouse, the Mexico School System 
Supervisor of Music. 

There are two awards given 
each year at the Interfraternity 
Sing. The Edward H. Wass Cup 
is awarded for a first place rating 
in the Finals, and is given in 

memory of Professor Wass of the 
Music Department. Last year the 
Zeta Psi Fraternity captured the 
Wass Cup. The other award is the 
George W. Graham Improvement 
Cup, and is given by the Deke 
House to "That fraternity which 
shows the most significant im- 
provement in the course of a 
year." Last year this award had 
to be split four different ways; 
to the Chi Psi. Delta Sigma, Sig- 
ma No., and ARU Houses. 

The order of appearance and se- 
lections for the Preliminaries will 
be as listed. (1) Deke: "Delta

Critics Find Faculty Production 
OfMisanthropeA 4S CreditableJob w 

' Daniel Calder and Thomas Lindsay 

The Faculty production of The 
Misanthrope presented the college 
community with its first such un- 
dertaking in five years. We are 
pleased to report that the Faculty 
did indeed a creditable job and 
provided a thoroughly enjoyable 
evening of Moliere in the English 
rendering by Richard Wilbur. 

With such a play it would be 
difficult to go astray. With the 
excellent set by Jeanna Bearce, 
the lavish costuming, and the 
competence of the Faculty cast 
this resulted In a fine evening of 
theatrical entertainment. To do 
full justice to the play would de- 
mand a trained troupe with pro- 
fessional polish, but it is to the 
credit of those concerned that 
they managed to accomplish so 
much within their limited ranges. 

The snood of the evening was 
set *dth the music of the chamber 
ensemble led by David Holmes and 
joined by Mr. and Mrs William 
Whiteside and their son. and Mrs. 
Louise Huntington. Their choice 
of music from the seventeenth cen- 
tury was, like the play, gay and 
yet presented in the formal man- 
ner of classical clarity. 
» The lightly biting Prologue, writ- 
ten by Mr. Louis O. Coxe. was an 
excellent occasional piece and re- 
ceived a warm response from an 
audience which is unaccustomed 
to hearing familiar names in the 
context of poetic wit. Mr. Carre's 
delivery was smooth and timed 
well bringing out the full merit of 
the verse. 

As the Misanthrope. Mr. Rich- 
ard Chittim did a fine job. He cap- 
tured many of Alceste's bombastic 
characteristics, although some of 

the finer shading's of Alceste 

this year. The ensuing discussion 
brought out several suggestions 
as to how this problem could be 
eliminated. It was generally real- 
ized that it is desirable to have 
an entertainment weekend during 
March, and also that raising funds 
by means of a charity weekend is 
superior to straight canvassing or 
mandatory contribution. Guy Da- 
vis opined that the unusually high 
level of drunkenness was encour- 
aged by some houses in order to 
more easily persuade their mem- 
bers to contribute. This tendency 
would be eliminated, he said, by 
de-emphasizing competition be- 
tween the houses for highest 
amount of money per capita. To 
make up for this possible loss in 
funds, more stress should be 
placed on making money through 
dances, concerts, etc. The council 
suggested that perhaps some sort 
of big name attraction would en- 
hance this possibility. 

An increase in the number of 
students on the Blanket Tax Com- 
mittee was also discussed. It was 
felt on one side that this Increase, 
which would decrease the num- 
ber of faculty members on the 
committee, was desirable because 
it would encourage student par- 
ticipation in the administration of 
funds which come from the stu- 
dents. On the other hand, It was 
pointed out that since the faculty 
does most of the work on the 
committee anyway, a decrease in 

ment was our not having a feudal 
tradition. He felt that this rational 
optimism was balanced by Our 
Christian religious heritage which 
showed us the sobering side of 

the position of the conservative 
and conservatism in America. He 
characterized these as "forlorn, 
displaced" entities in America un- 
til recently. He felt that conserva- 
tism was beginning to catch up

Campus Chest Weekend 

Campus Cheat weekend, the College's one unified appeal 
for charity ;n the academic year, was not wholly satisfactory in 
some of its a/pecta. This year's gross receipts whrle about 
$ 1 000 under |ajt year's can still be considered a g°od sum in 
view of the relatively few students on campus and the .even 
fewer number of date*. 

While we cannot legitimately complain from a financial 
standpoint we dp feel that the weekend failed to .satisfactorily 
emphasize the charitable aspects, and took on all the unmistak- 
able signs of a free-flowing alcoholic spree. Certainly this is 
not desirable and several measures are in order to remedy the 
problem in the future. A regular joint glee club concert with a 
girl's college, a* ha* been scheduled for next year, is a necessity 
not only because it would attract a greater audience but also 
because It would increase the number of dates on campus. Such 
an increase, would inevitably tend to cut down alcoholic pursuits. 

With this in mind the College should take every step pos- 
sible to encourage this weekend. A number of proposals have 
been made suggesting a possible revision of the Campus Cheat 
program, and a Student Council sub-committee is studying the 
problem. We capnot support the suggestion that the weekend 
be abandoned to a straight charity appeal. Idealistically, such 
an appeal would be more genuinely charitable, but practically, 
would probably have meager results. Nor can we support the 
opposition to bringing in outside entertainment groups especial- 
ly on Friday night based on the feeling that it is a College charity 
weekend and should be kept in the "family." 

Frnphaajizing Campus Chest Weekend by careful choice 
of weekend by having a joint glee club concert and other out- 
side entertainments would serve not only to increase the financial 
success of the weekend but would also make it a more desirable 
weekend socially.

Long-range programs are Important 
-for both man and missiles" 

"In a company dedicated to research and development, 
a young man's opportunities to learn more — to increase 
his technical skills— are almost unlimited," says 31-year- 
old Harry Lawton, Jr., a General Electric engineer 
engaged in the development of inertial guidance and 
fire-control systems for ballistic missiles. "And to main- 
tain America's scientific leadership, we're going to need 
all the technical training and skills we can produce. 

"An. important aspect of my job at General Electric 
is the continuing opportunity to learn more. I've been 
able to continue my education in the company's Physics 
Program for college graduates. And I also have the 
advantage of association with top technical experts in 
my work, Opportunities like this have helped me real- 
ise that longrrange programs are important- for both 
men and missiles." 

Harry Lawton is one of several hundred technical 
graduates who are devoting their skills to the develop- 

ment of 14 government missile projects to which General 
Electric is a major contributor. More and more our 
scientific progress and our national security depend on 
men like this — men who bring high qualifications to 
their work and who continue their quest for knowledge, 
both on and off the job. 

General Electric believes that individual initiative 
and career growth are essential to America's continued 
technological leadership. To this end, the company en- 
courages all »f its employees - including more than 
30,000 college graduates - to develop to their fullest 
capabilities by providing opportunities for increasing 
knowledge and workinir skills.

Former Polar Bear hammer thrower Bill McWilliams, who

McWilliams is working out every day, throwing the ham-

Jeam. Reports say that the former White star has already 
equaled his best practice throw of the past. 

As we well remember, McWilliams was one of the top

Practice For 

Spring Opener 

By BUI Skeltun 

The first days of spring were 
the sign for Coach Sabasteaneki 
to begin whipping his trackmen 
into snspe for the outdoor season 
which opens here April 18 against 
Boston College and Amherst. The 
team, should be strong both in 
quality and depth. 

Captain Larry Wilkins is the 
mainstay of the White and should 
continue to add to his stature as 
one of Bowdoin's all-time great 
athletes. He is a mountain of pow- 
er in both hurdles and sprints. 
Backing him up in the short dis- 
tances are several good prospects, 
Jon Scarpino will lend badly need- 
ed depth in the sprints. If Charlie 
Towle call overcome the injuries 
which have plagued him for sev- 
eral seasons, his blazing start and 
hurdling ability will be a big help. 
George Gordon, a hurdler, and 
Dick Seavey. a sprinter, are round- 
ing into shape and should prove 
valuable point scorers in the short 

The 440 presents a problem. 
Most of the load will rest on the 
shoulders of Jay Goldstein. Gold- 
stein missed most of last spring 
due to injuries but showed sev- 
eral good performances during the 
winter. If John Doherty is able 
to rebound from a disastrous in- 
door season and regain his form 
of last spring, the quarter mile 
should be in good hands. 

John Green, captain-elect for 
next winter, is the man to beat 
in the 880. Backing him up are 
Ed Bean and Bill Skelton. both 
capable of breaking two minutes. 
With miler Ted Richards also 
doubling in this event, the half 
mile emerges as one of the strong 
points of the team. 

Richards is a consistent perfor- 
mer in the mile and has shown 
great improvement during the last 
few seasons. Another good pos- 
sibility in the distances is True 
Miller who can run either the 
mile or two-mile. 

The mainstay of the two-mile 
is Squint Moran. He is a great 
competitor and ranks with Wil- 
kins and Green as one of the most 
consistent performers on the team. 

The weight events should be 
stronger than they were this win- 
ter. Gerry Ha vi land is fast de- 
veloping into an excellent hammer 
thrower. Dave Titus also has 
much potential in this event. "Fhe 
shot put is in good hands with 
John Vette throwing the iron ball 
but there is no capable second 
man. Deane Turner, Gig Robln,- 
yson, and Bill Mason comprise a 
strong discus group. Bowdoin's 
hopes in the javelin rest on Ron 
Tripp who has proven himself to 
be a top-flight performer in the

Mitchell Debate Trophy 50th Anniversary Of Peary's Nolde Etching 
Won By Beta Theta Pi Quest Marked By Lectures E ^%^™ 

Tn a inlit decision Wednesday should he aduented in different Iji«» utmIi nn the «ix«h nf Anril minutes N. latitude. Within the 

In a split decision Wednesday 
night, April 8th, Nick Monsour and 
Tony Perry of Beta Theta Pi won 
the final of the Wilmot Brookings 
Mitchell Trophy of the Interfra- 
ternity Debate Competition. Beta 
upheld the resolution: that co-edu- 
cation at the college level is a 
more sound educational philosophy 
than is segregation of the sexes. 
John Bayliss and Frank Mahncke, 
representing Delta Sigma, defend- 
ed the negative side. President 
James Stacy Coles presided over 
the extremely interesting debate 
at Smith Auditorium. The three 
Judges were: Reginald Call, Lec- 
turer in English; William Geog- 
hegan, Assistant Professor of Re- 
ligion; and Captain Wallace Lea- 
hey. Assistant Professor of Mili- 
tary Science. 

In the opening argument, Tony 
Perry listed three reasons in de- 
fense of the resolution. He felt 
that , segregated institutions are 
outdated, maintain an unnatural 
environment for the students, and 
hamper the education of women. 
He cited the trend toward co- 
educational colleges such as at 
Radcliffe and Oberlin. He felt 
that a man's search for a wife is 
"aided by intimate contact with 
members of the opposite sex in 
college. Perry also maintained 
that the bent educational institu- 
tions are devoted to educating 

With the words, "I Just hope 
that the coming of Spring hasn't 
Influenced our opponent's logic," 
John Bayliss opened the negative 
case. Bayliss listed as his main 
objection to co-education the "flirt- 
ation ritual of high school" that 
adversely influences male scholars. 

Frank Mahancke, in the best 
demonstration of speaking and de- 
bating ability in the evening, point- 
ed out that since men and women 
have different roles in life they 

should be educated in different 
spirits. College should be like 
a workingman's vacation that al- 
lows one to examine life in an 
unpressured situation. However, 
he maintained that some events 
tn the life of a college man (Ivy 
Weekend for example) could cer- 
tainly not be called monastic. 
Mahancke observed that the aver- 
age female is a good deal better 
looking than any Bowdoin Profes- 
sor and that this constituted a 
distraction in the classroom. 

Nick Monseur of the affirmative 
countered Mahancke's argument, 
"Are women a distraction? Yes, 
they are! But what kind of a dis- 
traction will they be after we've 
been segregated from them for 
four years?" 

The debate, spotted with much 

5;ood humor, was thoroughly en- 
oyed by the audience of over one 
hundred students and faculty 
members. While the ballots were 
tallied, President Coles opened the 
debate to questions from -the floor. 
During the questioning, Tony Paul 
confronted the negative with the 
contention that women would be 
a source of competition and thus 
heighten intellectual activity and 
the, Affirmative was forced to ad- 
mit that they did not advocate the 
admission of a girl to the An- 
napolis Naval Academy. 

President Coles presented' the 
Wilmot Brookings Mitchell Trophy 
to Beta Theta Pi who now hold 
one leg on the second trophy. The 
Dekes won the first leg last year 
on -the new cup. The Betas re- 
tired the first cup by winning on 
three different years.

carried away with the part, was 
more absurd than foolish. , For- 
tunately Thill maintained a more 
delicate balance in his portrayal. 

Mrs. Mary Chittim depicted Ar- 
sinoe, the aging coquette, with 
great finesse and understanding. 
This same holds true for Mrs. 
Jeanne Walker in the part of 
Eliante. Mrs. Walker acted grace- 
fully and sympathetically in a 
role which seemed natural for her. 

Even though his role of the 
clown was brief. Mr. Fritz Koelln 
will remain a standout in the 
theatre-goer's memory. He was 
perfect. Other minor roles were 
well played by Mr. Peter Batchel- 
der ahd Mr. Phillip Wilder. 

The pacing of the production 
was sporadic, although it must be 
stated that this was due to a cer- 
tain extent to those actors imme- 
diately concerned. Where it was 
successful it moved with fluidity, 
and utilized the Moliere-Wilbur 
text well. At other times, however, 
the humor was either labored "or 
missed completely. One might have 
wished for that one final spark to 
set the production into a com- 
pletely polished and formal ar- 
ray of seventeenth century splen- 

If the lighting of Mrs. Bearce's 
set was trying to reproduce the 
candlelight effects of Moliere's 
theatre, it failed. In a modern con- 
text the effect of candlelight could 
have been reproduced by the use 
of more but dimmer lighting in 
specific stage areas. This would 
have eliminated some of the deep

Last week on the sixth of April, 
fifty years had gone by since man 
first stood at the North Pole: Ad- 
miral Robert Erwin Peary, Mat- 
thew A. Hennson and four Eski- 
moes, these were the men on that 
barren spot, lifeless of all forms 
but ice, the sky. and the cold — 
but they were also encircled with 
the feeling of glory, the glory that 
comes from the fullflllment of a 

"Man can be destroyed but not 
defeated," this was the force that 
pushed Peary onward, he could not 
let the ice defeat him, he could 
not be defeated by the world, by 
an inanimate object, man must 
be master to be able to live, and 
so it was Peary at' long last, af- 
ter numerous tries, was master, 
master of the Pole, he had done 
what no other man had done be- 

' The account that Peary reported 
to the N. Y. Times on September 
ninth, 1909. shows in its form the 
kind of man Peary was; quiet, un- 
imposing, but yet powerful in his 
silent andjion-braggard ways. The 
following is part of the telegram 
sent by Peary as first printed in 
the Times: 

". . . passed .Norwegian rec- 
ord March 28; passed Italian 
record March 24; encountered 
open load March 28; crossed

American record March 28; en- 
countered open lead March 28; 
held up by open waters March 
29; crossed 89th parallel April 4; 
North Pole April 6." 
This was the end of the goal, 
and of the fight against the moving 
ice, the -60 to -80 degree F. wea- 
ther: this was the point of easy 
breathing within Peary, the les- 
sening of the tension, the break- 
ing of a smile in a bearded and 
frosty face. 

This climax of the life of Peary, 
of the life of man, will be com- 
memorated by the special series of 
Arctic lectures to be held at th«

Mrs. Edward (Marie Peary) Staf-

tilus, which last summer made the 
first undersea voyage to the North 
Pole; and Commander Edward P. 
Stafford, Peary's grandson.

will live in real peace or in the 
demoralizing world situation that 
we have today. America, he felt, 
is getting used to the prophesies 
of the destruction and doom that 
wUl accompany the hydrogen war 
thato has been hanging over us 
forVjO long. Every day it was pos- 
sibll to hear some one "calmly 
predicting catastrophe," even heads 
ot government* 

homas said that although war 
s bet:n one of the most hated of 
all human institutions, it has also 
been one of the most cherished. 
Thus, although he attributed the 
beginning of the cold war to Stal- 
in's determination to continue ag-'

has subsequently built up in this 
country an important group of 
vested interests who are benefit- 
ing by its continuance. Such in- 
terests were the armed forces 
"who never had it so good," cer- 
tain scientists, universities, and 
business who have derived much 
benefit from government spending 
for preparedness. Indeed the feel- 
ing that our present prosperity is 
almost entirely dependent on such 
federal spending is common 
throughout the nation. 

However, if we really want

A special exhibit of 41 etchings 
by Emil Nolde is being shown at 
the Walker Art Building at Bow- 
doin College until April 22. Nolde 
was born in 1867 in the town of 
Nolde. in Schleswig near the Da- 
nish border. He studied art in 
Paris, Copenhagen, and Munich, 
and in the years before the turn 
of the century practiced the fluid 
Impressionist style in vogue in 
Germany at that time. His be- 
ginnings as a printmaker date 
from this period, his first small 
etching plate being completed in 

"Nolde'g etchings are remark- 
able," Professor Schmalz said to- 
day, "not only for their superb 
composition and technique but 
also for the variety and depth of 
feeling found throughout his ex- 
tensive production. The intense 
human feeling given form in his 
art ranks him as a leading master

"It is interesting that Nolde's 
initial efforts in printmaking make 
use of intaglio techniques, for al- 
though he soon began to work 
in woodcut and lithography, pro- 
ducing many brilliant prints in the 
years 1906-18. it is in etching, dry- 
point, and aquatint that the rich-

securing it. He felt that the Unit- 
ed States was just as much to 
blame as Russia for our impasse 
in disarmament talks, and have 
also been equals with Russia in 
thwarting the effectiveness of the 
U.N. Also Thomas said, that we 
had been ineffective in disengage- 
ment, that is the solving of the 
foreign crises that are continually 
bringing us to the edge of war. 
While the problems of transferred 
territories and certain European 
prejudices against it would prob- 
ably prevent the solution of Ger- 
man unification, in the Far East, 
where we had set up an artificial 
state in Formosa and had denied 
Communist China any means of 
expressing herself to us other than 
war. in the Near East, where by 
connecting Pan-Arabism and Nas- 
ser too closely with Communism 
and Khrushchev we have succeeded 
in only pushing them closer to- 
gether than they actually were, 
and finally in our foreign aid, in 
which we give arms to small for-* 
eign nations to preventi Commu- 
nism, arms which are generally 
used to aid the small ambitions of 
small despots. 

Thomas ended by saying, that it 
is "a balance of terror" that is 
keeping the Cold War going and 
that as long as the world puts its 
faith in preparedness and arma- 
ment for the maintenance of the 
peace, there will be no peace.

negative thinking (No-Saving) 
rather than the reflective conserva- 
tivism that he felt he adhered to. 
He referred to this latter variety 
of conservatism as being "norma- 
tive." that is as seeking and at- 
tempting to put into effect 
"Norms," or those lasting princi- 
ples which civilization has held for 
a long time. The Normative Con- 
servative, he described as one who 
believed that through history hu- 
manity has always been essentially 
the same, and that although a con- 
stant of human nature can be 
known, a perfect society is unat- 
tainable. This belief in some kind 
of natural law leads Kirk's Norm- 
ative Conservative to seek a "pru- 
dential" outlook on politics, to rea- 
lize that "When it is not neces-' 
sary to change, it is necessary not 
to change," and to agree with the 
medieval thinker, Fulbert of 
Chartres, that the men of each 
age are "dwarfs standing on the 
shoulders of giants," that is the ex- 
perience of the past. Although pes- 
simistically not believing in the 
perfectability of society. Kirk's 
conservative believes that man im- 
proves his natuae through the 
struggle for perfection. Society 
must therefore be able to satisfy 
the needs of the two basic natures 
of mankind. It must not only be 

able to allow the creative, ener- 
getic, aggressive natures to ex- 
press themselves; it must also pro- 
vide for the security of the tran- 
quil conforming natures. 

Kirk felt that modern Western 
society had six main problems 
•which It must eventually solve. 
These were: the monotony of our 
culture, modern man's sense of 
boredom with his work, the es- 
tablishment of order for Just and 
coherent leadership and law, the 
development of a form of Justice 
which will satisfy the two natures 
of man. the preservation of liber- 
ty, and the restoration of stimu- 
lating education. Normative Con- 
servatism, with its sense of the 
tragedy and the nobility of life, 
was a philosophy well suited for 
the solution of thesa-problems.

Earle S. Thompson, a native of 
Bath and a trustee of Bowdoin 
College since 1947, was awarded 
an honorary doctor of laws degree 
at Founders' Day fexercises held 
recently at Marietta College in 
Ohio. He is chairman of the board 
and chief executive officer of The 
West Electric Company in New 
York City, which he served for 
many years as president. 

A graduate of Morse High 
School in Bath and of Bowdoin m 
•the Class of 1914, Mr. Thompson 
is currently chairman of the Gov- 
erning Boards' Development Com- 
mittee and Finance Committee 
here at Bowdoin. He is a direc- 
tor of the City Bank Farmers 
Trust Co., the Yale & Towne Mfg. 
Co., and the Ritz -Carlton Hotel 
Co., and is a trustee of the Dry 
Dock Savings Bank, the Teachers 
Insurance & Annuity Association 
of America, and the Lenox Hill 
Hospital in New York. 

The citation read at Marietta is, 
in part, as follows: "Symbolic of

'Albatrosses and Men on Mid- 
way Islands" will be the subject 
of the Achorn bird lecture to be 
presented at Bowdoin College on 
Thursday, April 23, by Dr. Hubert 
Frings, Professor of Zoology at 
Pennsylvania State University. 

Professor Frings returned ear- 
lier this winter from several 
months at the Midway Islands, 
where he worked on the problems 
of controlling albatrosses so that 
United States airplanes may take 
off the flying fields there. His ra|k 
will be illustrated by color slides, 
and he will also play recordings of 
the sounds of the birds. 

A native of Philadelphia, Dr. 
Frings is a graduate of Pennsyl- 
vania State and holds advanced 
degrees from the University of Ok- 
lahoma and the University of 
Minnesota. During World War II 
he was an insect physiologist at 
the Chemical Warfare Center at 
Edgewood Arsenal, Md. Before 
joining the faculty at Pennsyl- 
vania State in 1947, he taught at 
West Virginia Wesleyan College 
and "was chairman of the biology 
department at Gustavus Adolphus 
College in Minnesota. 

His research work in ridding 
urban areas of starlings has at- 
tracted wide attention. His meth- 
od is to tape record and play 
through amplifiers the distress 
call of the starling. He has also 
applied the same method to rid- 
ding areas of herring gulls. 

In addition. Professor Frings 
has done research on killing in- 
sects in fruits and vegetables by 
radio frequency heating.

Donald M. Bloch, a member of 
Alpha Rho Upsilon and a junior 
majoring In government, was 
awarded the Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt Cup by President James 
S. Coles in a special chapel cere- 
mony today. The Roosevelt Cup, 
given by Alpha Delta Phi fratern- 
ity, is presented each year to "that 
member of the three lower classes 
whose vision, humanity, and cour- 
age most contribute to making 
Bowdoin a better college." 

Bloch is the president of the 
Political Forum, has twice been 
named a James Bowdoin Scholar, 
has been on the Dean's List con- 
sistently, and has recently co- 
authored a paper entitled," Non- 
Voting in Auburn," published by 
the Bowdoin Citizenship Clearing 
House. , 

The judges for the recepient are 
the President, the Dean, the Fac- 
ulty Advisor of the Alpha Delta 
Phi, the President of Alpha Delta 
Phi, and the President of the Stu- 
dent Council. The choice is neces-

Popham beach is especially fine 
for this sort of action. The view 
is good, the beach long, the sand 
dunes extensive, and there are all 
kinds of driftwood for those so 
inclined. A few caves dot the 
southern parts of the beach. There 
is an island too. accessible at low 
tide, not accessible at high. What 
a pity if one were caught o>u there 
with a fellow adventure. At the 
northern end of the beach »ht re is 
Fort Popham. This is worth a trip 
in itself. It looks like a noble ruin, 
but isn't. It was just never com- 
pleted. Started at the outbreak of 
the Civil War to protect the ap- 
proaches to Bath's ship-building in- 
dustries via the Kennebec River, it 
was only half finished by Appo- 
mattox. The fort is full of cav- 
erns, passages, enclosed steps, 
tumbled blocks, and includes a 
State picnic area. It is a wonder- 
ful place for climbing, exploring, 
or just plain settln' and watchin'; 
possibly thinkin'. It is a credit to 
the State of Maine that they have 
let this area be opened to the 
public. Most other places would 
have considered it dangerous, 
(which it can be) and shut it down. 
This of course would only have 
served to attract, any kid within 
adventure distance that wasn't 
nailed down. I suppose someday a 
bunch of little old ladies, their 
petit point finished, will get to- 
gether to see what they can louse

I don't know if they are supposed 
to be open but they are accessible. 
Located on the high hill to the 
west of Fort Popham they consist 
of more cement caves and a tall 
tower. A long climb to the top of 
the tower will reward the athlete 
with a fine view of the area for 
miles around. (Once the black

successful fight against the insid- 
ious advance of "Togetherness." 
Not one phone booth has been re- 
duced to fire-starters in the inter- 
ests of a new record. Not one 
Volkswagen has had to flee back 
to the Fatherland in terror of a 
weight somewhat exceeding manu- 
facturer's specifications. You don't 
know how happy this makes a 
great number of people. Fifty jun- 
ior vice presidents of American 
Telephone and Telegraph have 
been sacrificed in their flannels on 
this occasion. The high command 
of Das Volksvagenverks is ach- 
tungfng all over the zone and add- 
ing a pfnig or two to each work- 
er's pay. The move on the part of 
the student council to put turn- 
stiles on the oho ne booth doors has 
been defeated. The administration 
will not put "checkers" in the 
boothes and demand compulsory 
attendance as previously rumor- 
ed. The operators have not been 
instructed to say "number, 
please." Through this gaiety comes 
news that the Oxford champion- 
ship has been disqualified as they 
were using a war surplus rubber 
phone booth. (This exploded with 
devastating results to the campus.) 
Don't think Bowdoin is to be out- 
done however; we too have our 
records. What other college can 
boast a fraternity containing 
twenty-two freshmen pledges who 
begged to be sealed in a closet; 
with cigars ? All part of the noble 
experiment of "Orientation." 

"Honest Dean, it was really 
their idea." 

In the midst of this gaiety how- 
ever it is my sad duty to intro- 
duce a-little gloom. Last Wednes- 
day marked the passing of an old 
Bowdoin tradition. The 5:35 P.M. 
mail train has been discontinued. 
As no one is in any condition to 
write letters before ten in the 
morning this means one more day 
of delivery time between here and 
the "great outside world of girl's 
school. This. is another part of the 
sneaky plan to shut Bowdoin off* 
from anywhere. To the mast while 
there is still time.

Rhodes Scholars 
After Marriage 

Rhodes Scholars who are per- 
mitted to remain at Oxford Uni- 
versity for a third year on their 
Scholarship will henceforth be al- 
lowed to marrv and retain their 
Scholarships. This announcement 
has just been made by Dr. Court- 
ney Smith, President of Swarth- 
more College and American Sec- 
retary of the Rhodes Scholarships. 

President Sr/iith said that his 
announcement in no other way 
changes the regulations for 
Rhodes candidates. An applicant 
must be a single male who is a 
citizen of the Unitea States with 
at least five years residence. He 
must have at least junior standing 
in some recognized degree-grant- 
ing four year American college or 
university, and must be age 18 to 
24 on -October 1 of the year in 
which he applies. Active military 
duty over 90 days since June 27, 
1950, may be subtracted from the 
applicant's age. 

The action modifying the regu- 
lation on marriage is the first 
permanent change in the require- 
ment that only single men be al- 
lowed to hold Rhodes Scholarships. 
The regulation was once before 
suspended in 1946, 1947, and 1948, 
when veterans (or men with war- 
time deferments), who were mar- 
ried - and who would have been 
eligible at any time during the 
wartime suspension of the Schol- 
arships, could be selected. For non- 
veterans the regulations did not

Show Promise Season In Boston This Week 

In First Meet 

The Bowdoin freshmen beat 
four of the eight crews competing 
in the regatta on Mystic Lake 
Sunday, April 5. Skippering in A 
division was Stan Logan with Bob 
VVhelan as crew. Terry Clark skip- 
pered with crew. Steve Bean in 
B division. Logan won one of the 
eight races of his division, which 
helped to clinch the fourth-place 
position. - 

The weather during the regatta 
was not ideal as the wind was 
strong and Just a bit flucky. Keep- 
ing a small boat afloat in heavy 
weather is not easy. The team 
should be congratulated for keep- 
ing a clean non-capsizing record. 

The 1959 spring teams are ready 
for their openings this week after 
many weeks of hard work and 
preparation. Coach Danny McFay- 
den's men have had the advantage 
of a four game Southern tour and 
a scrimmage prior to their regu- 
lar season Boston tour at the end 
of this week. In a scrimmage game 
played last week against Bates, 
the Polar Bears triumphed 14-9 
with Captain Tony Berlandi and 
Pete Papazoglou leading the way. 
The White hitters will play North- 
eastern. M.I.T., Williams, and 
Tufts from Wednesday on. 

The newest edition to Bowdoin's 
athletic clubs, the Lacrosse Team 
coached by head football mentor 

Nels Corey, after a cancellation 
of a game with Tufts last Monday 
because of rain will meet Nichols 
Junior Cojlege at Worcester on 
Thursday. These boys have been 
working hard in March and much 
can be inspected from the many 
veterans, as well as some outstand- 
ing freshmen. 

Golf, Tennis, Sailing 
Bob Donham's tennis charges 
will open their season down in 
Boston this weekend against 
M.I.T., Tufts, and Babson, while 
the Golf Team will take on the 
latter two. The White sailors will 
try to continue their winning ways 
against Coast Guard in New Lon- 
don on Saturday.

Seniors Romp 
Over Juniors 
In Class Games 

The Senior Class reigned as 
champions early last week as the 
annual Class Basketball Tourna- 
ment ended. It has been a tradi- 
tion in recent years tha£ the aged 
element should prevail, and this 
year's elders were' determined to 
perpetuate this. In the final game 
a more experienced Senior Team 
defeated a hard-fighting junior 
quintet by the score of 49-35. 
Leading the upperclassmen in the 
scoring column were Bob Gorra 
with 16 and Pete Papazoglou 
with 12. The seniors held a com- 
manding lead throughout the en- 
tire contest. 

In the semi-finals, the two 
stronger teams, the freshmen and 
sophomores outfits, were defeated 
in two close encounters. In the 
first, the juniors subdued the soph- 
omores 64-55. Bruce Appleby and 
basketball co-captain-elect Al 
Simonds led the juniors with 23 
and 19 points respectively. Bers- 
holtz and Leeman headed the 
loser's scoring with 14 and 10 
points. In the second game of the 
evening, the aging seniors upset 
the freshmen, seated f)rst; prim- 
arily because they had played to- 
gether, 52-45. Captain Dick WUley 
scored 17 for the seniors, who 
turned in an excellent complete 
team effort to down the frosh. Mc- 
Govern, Gora, and Papazoglou all 
hit effectively to preserve their 
narrow edge throughout the game. 
The sluggish frosh, handicapped by 
an inability to shoot well were led 
by Bill Cohen and Woody Liljiman 
who scored 22 points between 
them. Both of these semi-final 
games were highlighted by spark- 
ing play, and the over-all team 
work and shooting of the teams 
was often sensational. 

White Runners 
Take Amherst; 
Beaten By B.C. 

Opening at home in a triangular 
meet with Boston College and Am- 
herst, an undermanned Bowdoin 
track squad got the most out of 
limited talent to defeat the Lord 
Jeffs, although B.C.'s fine distance 
men and weightman Larry Barry 
were too much for the White run- 
nei-s. Performances were hamper- 
ed by a bitter wind. Aarry Wilkins 
won the 100. 200. and 220 lows de- 
spite a slight muscle pull. Jerry 
Haviland was the only other win- 
ner for the Sabemen. The muscu- 
lar soph won the hammer and 
had a third in the shot put. The 
weightmen had a good day, con- 
tributing 22 points in their four 
events. In the sprints, Jay Gold- 
stein backed up Wilkins with a 
third in the 100 and a fourth in 
the 220. 

John Dohertv regained the form 
he showed outdoors last season in 
the 440 with a strong second be- 
hind Quinn's 49.5. 

Bowdoin had no entries in the 
high jump and high hurdles. There 
are at least three men in the 
school who could have cleared 
the winning height in the jump, 
and one of these is a 15.4 hurdler.

Coach Sabasteanski and his Polar Bear traclcsters should 
fee commended for their fine performance in the Amherst-Boaton 
College meet held last weekend, Larry Wilkins and Gerry 
Haviland were outstanding in their individual events; Wilkins 
taking the 100, 220, and low hurdles and Haviland, the ham- 
mer, r 

One sore thumb stood out at the meet. Where were our 
entries in the high jump. and the high hurdles? It is commonly 
known that there were at least three high jump entries in this 
year's lnterf raternity Track Meet and there are probably a few 
high hurdlers left around campus. We know of one man who 
is both a jumper and a high hurdler who can do the highs in 15.4 
seconds. At least three high jumpers here are known to be cap- 
able of clearing this weekend's winning jump of 5 7". Yet, we 
have none of the above-mentioned listed on the 1959 Spring 
edition of the track squad. 

We of the Orient sports department are worried about this I 
alleged student apathy. We often hear the familiar cry around 
the houses: 'We need athletes up here.' Now, here is a case 
where we have them, but they are not on the field. We are try- 
ing to put our best foot forward in interacholastic competition.- . 
Yet, how is it possible for us to do so when our athletes, men 
with proven ability, are not willing to cooperate and represent 

This situation is not a very healthy one. 


Congratulations are in order to the Sailing Team on their . 
great job this past weekend. If you look closely at the tally 
sheet elsewhere on this page, you will see that we finis; ed ahead 
of some of the top sailing teams in the nation. . 

Very few men realize how well our sailors represent *js in 
interscholastic meets. There were twelve schools participating 
in Cambridge last weekend, and we finished in third place. Each 
of these schools know the name of Bowdoin and respects our 
sailing ability. Most of the team's meets are similar to the 
above in size and difficulty. We feel that the' record of this 
team speaks for itself. It is one of the best compiled by a White 
athletic team in many years. Our sailors are definitely among 
the best in the country. 

Surely, it is possible to recognize the fine performances of 
these men who travel to represent us every fall and spring by 
the awarding of letter-sweaters. After all, these are only four 
men on a team which has done a great deal to spread the name 
of Bowdoin College.

Hedenstedt Stars 
AsGub Trackmen 
Defeated By B.C. 

A cloudy, windy day, with the 
temperature in the forties, and a 
slow track,, which had not yet re- 
covered frotn the past winter's 
snow' and ice. hindered the prog- 
ress of an exciting track meet at 
Whittier Field last Saturday. 

Whan the final results were tab- 
ulated, the Polar Cubs were found 
on the wrong end of a score. Nev- 
ertheless, several outstanding per- 
formances gave evidence of hap- 
pier results in the very near fu — 
ture — especially when the weath- 
er becomes less harsh. 

Nils Hedenstedt was high scorer 
for the Black and White, copping 
five points with a victory in the 
pole vault and five additional 
points in the discus, high jump 
and broad jump. 

Wendell Sides provided the day's 
mostaxciting race, by coming from 
five yards in arrears to nip B. C.'s 
Duff by inches in the 440. 

Other Bowdoin Freshmen who 
gained victors' laurels were Howie 
Hall in the hammer toss and Pete 
Gillies in the 880.

thought concerning the fraterni- 
ties rests. The first two are com- 
monly employed in the defense of 
the present system; and the third 
is vitually universal among its crit- 
ics. In challenging the latter, I 
believe that I take a significantly 
unusual stand. 

First and most pernicious is the 
supposition that a distribution of 
talent — through accidental mem- 
bership — makes for representa- 
tion. This* is in fact the formula 
for neutralizing Individual con- 
tributions. To spread the talent in 
a small school under the condi- 
tions of the present divisive social 
system is equivalent to Isolating 
and rendering it ineffective by 
holding it apart from the concen-

"The Class Of '63." Mr. Shaw — 
Stated in a recent Orient interview, 
"will be about the same size as 
Our present freshman class. Al- 
though the Governing Boards have 
voted for an increase to 925 stu- 
dents pending additional resources 
to care for 150 more students, the 
increase is not in effect now, and 
(• not planned for the immediate 
future. The quality of this year's 
candidates was exceedingly high, 
and the distribution will be good, 
with boys from 24 states and the 
District of Columbia accepted," he 

Financial Trend Noted 
The Class of '63 is expected to 
have 55 boys entering with ap- 
proximately $55,000 in scholarship 
grants, plus some aid in the form 
of loans and student jobs. The 
maximum scholarship awards come 
to $1,500, although a few will re- 
ceive more by means of a loan 
or campus Job next fall. This 
year 42% of the applicants re- 
quested financial aid. and approxi- 
mately 25% of next year's class 
will receive aid in amounts vary- 
ing with their demonstrated needs. 
This contrasts with the situation 
ten. years ago, when about 30, rep- 
resenting 14% of the entering 
class, were awarded pre-matricu- 
lation scholarships. The grants at 
that time were given on two levels : 
tuition plus $100 or $50. The 
trend towards more freshman aid 
b principally due to an increase 
in scholarship funds. Furthermore, 
prematriculation awards are now 
renewable if need continues and 
grades in courses are satisfactory.

Gahringer And Fraternites 

It is always interesting to see thought- provoking idea*, 
and Mr. Gahringer's views in last week's paper were no ex- 
ception. We will never quarrel with his basic premise that there 
are students of potential who are not sufficiently motivated to 
produce. We must all be aware of the problem, and more 
important, try to find ways of solving it. It is of little conse- 
quence to say merely that a problem exists if no workable so- 
lutions are advanced, and if the solutions that are advanced 
would bring greater evils than we presently have. 
Factual Inaccuracies 

We might first point out that Mr. Gahringer has not been 
completely accurate in his supporting evidence. He states that 
"It is commonly observed that one cannot carry on an intelli- 
gent conversation at a fraternity house dining table, or even in 
a fraternity house common room." The fact of the matter is 
that it is not true that intelligent conversations cannot be had 
in fraternity houses. It is true, however, that the mealtime does 
not tend to be the place for intellectual discussions of a high- 
plane. And this is a very healthy thing. Perhaps the meal 
can be most employed as a time of relaxation from the more 
serious academic pursuits of the classroom. Perhaps the serious 
and enlightening discussions that come in fraternities come at 
other times. We think so. We have seen them. 

Contrary to Mr. Gahringer's belief we cite the fact that 
many students do eat at fraternities other than their own, and 
they are welcome. He cites the unwillingness of fraternities to 
extend invitations, to other members of the college save in the 
"line of duty." It is our own personal experience that there are 
a number of houses \*hich pursue active "guest night" pro- 
grams, not because they feel obligated necessarily, but because 
they enjoy the opportunity to get together with the members of 
the faculty (and their wires) and talk outside the classroom 
which is, after all, one of the beauties of a small college. 

Mr. Gahringer further asserts that "the dominant group in 
every fraternity is usually the party group." We question the 
use of the word "dominant," but if one means the moat influ- 
ential group then one needs only to look at the high and mature 
quality of the house presidents. In almost the next breath, Mr. 
Gahringer states that under his new system of delayed rushing 
"at least the 'jocks' would not control in nearly every house as 
they presently do." It would seem to us that Mr. Gahringer 
•has not made any distinction here between the party element and 
the athletes. There are by no means synonomous, and in any 
case there is no evidence whatsoever that either group controls 
the majority of houses on campus. 

Basic Philosophy Weak 

More important, however, than the factual inaccuracies, 
is the philosophy underlying Mr. Gahringer's proposal. We find 
it unsound in two ways. First, we do not believe that you can 
"arrange" better motivations and more natural loyalties through 
various ^mechanisms. Mr. Gahringer feels that the weakly mo- 
tivated person will change his ways in houses which become 
typed through a system of regulations. What this unmotivated 
person really needs is to rub elbows with highly motivated 
people. Whether they all have the same vocational interest 
is not important. Motivation is a driving force which is found 
in people of all professions. Under the present system un- 
motivated and motivated persons come into contact in the 
name fraternities. Typing is not needed for this- to happen, and, 
more important, the Bowdoin way allows this to happen with- 
out the social and intellectual artificiality of a system which 
employs complex rules and regulations. 

Secondly, contrary to Mr. Gahringer, we must remember 
that people often come to. college with little notion or fake 
notions of what they want, and exposure to other interests and 
motivations serves as a valuable guidepost for them. Segrega- 
tion by interests prevents a person from exposing himself to 
others whose interests may in the long run turn out to be more 
like his own. 

Sin Of Omission 

Not only are Mr. Gahringer's facts inaccurate and his 
philosophy unsound in this particular case, but he has commit- 
ted the grave sin of omission. He confines his paper to a dis- 
cussion of one type of student only. Even if we assume that 
his suggested solution of this problem is sound, he neglects to 
examine the many evils that accrue from his program, evils for 
the many students with which he is not concerned. 

For example, delayed rushing would put freshman under 
pressure for a greater length of time. There would be an in- 
creased emphasis on fraternity rivalries. We would have a 
"veneer of glad hands and smiling" faces for a whole year. 
There would be a tendency to destroy the valuable aspects of 
association with upperclassmen (receiving scholastic aid). The 
freshmen would tend to stick more closely within small groups 
— a fact that would not add any unity to the freshman class 
in a college sense. 

Fraternities Not Perfect 

No fraternity at Bowdoin has or ever will claim perfection. 
Fraternities are always trying to improve. There is a great 
job to be done, and the time is here for the fraternities to "pick 
up the ball" and start running. Greater efforts should be made 
to strengthen active-alumni relationships, a stronger house ad- 
viser system from the faculty should be instituted, the fraterni- 
ties should strive to have incoming freshmen participate in the 
various college activities. One of the most encouraging things 
that has been seen in the recent past is the orientation program 
which we feel is the real key to the solution of a great many 
problems of both an academic and social nature. 

All parties concerned, and especially the fraternities them- 
selves should do everything possible to improve a system that 
is fundamentally sound, and represents one of the most unique 
features that Bowdoin has to offer.

Way back in my young impres- 
sionable days at Fairhaven High 
School, (before being hardened by 
college life) I used to write my 
my books. This was the year of 
name on page thirty-seven of all 
my birth, hence easy to remember. 
On page fifty-five I would sketch 
a whaling bark due to this being 
the New Bedford area and tha old 
home of America's whaling^leef. 
Ihi* was done for two reasons. 
First it, was a sort of adolescent 
theft insurance (we seemed to 
forget that the books had been 
"forced" on us in the first place). 
Secondly we had all been caution- 
ed in the most awful terms not to 
mark up our books and couldn't 
pass up an opportunity like this to 
demonstrate our, fearlessness in 
the face of secondary school des- 
potism. All this fascinating autobi- 
ography serves only to lead up to 
one small point. If you should pick 
up any one of the many over-due 
Bowdoin library books cluttering 
up your desk and turn to page 
fifty-five you will find in the up- 
per right hand corner of the page 
an oval Bowdoin College stamp. 
If the book is in that great ma- 
jority of those over one hundred 
years old the stamp will be in 
ink. If you were lucky enough 
to Ret the new book you will find 
the stamp in the form of an im- 
pression of the type so hard to 
duplicate on those phoney Maine 
driver's licenses. What they do 
with books of less than fifty-five 

pages I don't know. Perhaps they 
destroy them or lock them up in 
the rare book room. Six of one, 
half dozen of the other. As in my 
(more correctly the town of Fair- 
haven's) old school books there is 
much art work to be found too. 
However this doesn't "seem lb fol- 
low any definite pattern. Sketch- 
es can be found on just aboht any 
page arid of any subject. This 
could prove a gold-mine of ma- 
terial for anv Art major planning 
a paper on the undergraduate's in-

Fine Start 

Spring has again brought to the campus a number of sports 
teams that are off td a fine start. Once again, the Freshmen 
make the athletic picture brighter, as their baseball team did a 
good job of taking care of the Bobcat J.V.'s. 4-2, and their, 
tennis squad shut out a State Championship net squad from 
Brunswick, 9-0.

Sailing Team 
Qualifies For 
New Englands 

Fouling out in three of twelve 
races at M.I.T. last Sunday, the 
sailing team backed into the New 
England finals. The boys were 
figured to give Brown and B.U. 
a close race for top honors, but 
due to the three forfeits, they had 
a hard time in even qualifying. 
At the end of the racing our skip- 
pers, Joe Carven and Carl Olsson, 
had managed to tie Maine for third 
place with Bowdoin grabbing this 
last qualifying berth on the basis 
of number of wins scored. 

The finals Will be sailed at Coast 
Guard on May 9th. This time, only 
the' first two teams will go on to 
the national championships. The 
» boys realize that a disqualification 
in this meet could prove faf^l. 
It was fortunate that the mistakes 
came last weak instead of on May

Nichols JC, 17- J 

The White lacrosse team made 
its initial appearance on the cam- 
pus this season by beating a weak 
team from Nichols Junior College 
by a score of 17-3. Nels Corey's 
charges, In an exceptional perform- 
ance, were outstanding through- 
out the long afternoon as every- 
one on the squad was able to 
see service, including a large crop 
of this year's frosh. The stick- 
men were led by the powerful 
scoring punch of Bob Hohlfelder 
and freshman Nils Blatt, who 
should have a bright future In 
Bowdoin lacrosse. Hohlfelder was 
the leading scorer with five goals 
and one assist, for a total of six 
points. Blatz scored three goals, 
and assisted on three more to equal 
his teammate's total of six. Fresh- 
man Chuck Perrine scored two 
goals and played an outstanding 

First Period 

The afternoon's leading duo ac- 
counted £or the first three Bow- 
doin scores of the afternoon. Hohl- 
felder pushed one through the 
Nichols goal tended by Waltt at 
13:47 and again at 8:17, both times 
assisted by Blatz. Near the end 
of the period, Blatz went in un- 
assisted to score at 1:20. 
Second Period 

After only thirty-eight seconds 
had elapsed in this stanza, Hohl- 
felder again tallied with help from 
Mike Abrahams. About a minute 
later, Nichols' Steele pushed one 
past Spencer with the held of 
Anastas. Gil Winham then scored 
assisted by Ted Fuller, and was 
followed closely by an unassisted 
goal from Charlie Finlayson. At 
8:43 of this stanza, Al Merritt 
scored. The end of the period saw 
Chuck Perrine take a pass from 
Gil Winham to tally and Bob 
Bertholf do likewise from Blatz. 
Third Period 

The "Golden Duo" once more 
took charge to open this stanza 
with Blatz scoring once, and Hohl- 
felder twice with help on one of 
them from Finlayson. Halfway 
through the period, Marty Gray 
and Gene Waters took charge and 
put two past the Nichols net tend- 
er unassisted. At .12:58, frirrine's 
shot made the nets again, this 
time with help from a pass from 

Fourth Period 

Nichols finally made the Bow- 
doin cage with two unassisted 
marks around the four minute 
mark. Ingram and McGuire were 
responsible for these two unassist- 
ed ta'lies. R^ght after the Nichols 
goals, Hank Pollock passed to 
Fran FuJlpr, to give the" White 
its sixteenth tally of the after 
noon. Nils Blatz ended Ma own 
romp, as well as that' of the Pofar 
Bears, at 8:18 with, help from Fin- 

The afternoon was a display of 
the fine work that Coach Corey 
has done with the stickmen prior 
to the season's opener. The White 
were to open against Tufts last 
Tuesday, but the game was can- 
celled because of foul weather in 
the Boston area. 

It was noticed that there are 
eleven freshmen on this year's 
club. Most of these men have 
never played lacrosse, similar to 
many of the upperclassmen on the 
squad. If the participation keeps 
up at this rate, we are sure to 
have a fine team in the future.

ger of the Glee Club for next year,

sophomore classes. If interested,

The 1959 White nine opened its 
Boston tour last week on Wednes- 
day afternoon against a strong 
team from Northeastern Univer- 
sity. The starting pitcher for the 
afternoon was senior Ron Woods, 
when went the complete route only 
to lose to the men from Boston 
by a score of 8-3 because of faulty 
fielding on the part of the Polar 
Bears, who made five errors dur- 
ing the ballgame. Woods was 
credited with five strikeouts, while 
he gave up only two free passes'. 
Only three of tho Northeastern 
runs were earned. Pete Papazog- 
lou, star cehterfielder, again dis- 
played his season's fine form, by 
grabbing two'baaehits, while sopho- 
more Dick Leeman also accounted 
for two safeties. Papazoglou, 
Captain Tony Berlandj, and Bren 
Teeling drove in One' run apiece 
during the contest. Bpwdo'n 
scored one run in the first, an- 
other in the third, and the It 
in the first of the 
eastern put two ' 
last 6f the first, or 

and third, and "bur 

tofrther in the last of the' eighth 
to give them the insurance which 
they needed.' W ' ' ^^ 


In Thursday's contest against 
the engineers from Cambridge the 
White took a three nothing lead 
in the second stanza only to be 
beaten by a three run rally put 
on by nie MITtnen in the last of 
the sixth. Jack Condon was the 
starting pitcher, but was relieved 
by Bob Cojrvi in the seventh. At 
the time Corvi took the mound, 
the score was all even at 4-4 and 
it was not until the last of the 
ninth in their last regular turn 
at bat that M.I.T. could produce 
the winning tally. Condon was 
credited with six strikeouts, while 
Com had three in his short ap- 
pearance. Freddie Hall led the 
White batters with base knocks. 

In another close contest, the 
Jumbos came out on top of the 
Polar Bear nine by a score of 9-8. 
i 1 ";' Kame also showed some faulty 
fielding as the White made five 
errors. The Varsity led during 
tne nrst six innings of play by 
three runs, as they got one in the 
second and two in the third. The 
uiftsmen came back in the 

seventh with two runs and in a 
big eighth with six. The White 
scored in the eighth and two in 
the ninth to tie the score and 
make the ball game go into extra 
innings. The Jumbo nine ended 
it in the last of the tenth with 
one run. Papazoglou again" led 
the Bowdoin hitters with three 
safeties, while Tony Berlandi had 
two to his credit. Condqn was 
the losing hurler. 


Bowdoin finally came through on 
Friday with a 5-3 win over Wil- 
liams at Williamstowh as lefty 
Bob Swenson hurled a tour hitter. 

The White scored two runs each 
in the second and seventh and 
one in the fifth. 

A double by Pete Papazoglou 
and George Entin's single behind 
a walk by Brendan Teeling pro- 
duced the Polar Bear's second inn- 
ing scores. In the flifth. Captain 
Berlandi singled Pappy singled, 
afid Entta walked to fill the bases. 
Swenson helped his own cause out 
with a single to score Berlandi. 

In fly -seventh, 'the varsity nine 
loaded the sacks on a pair of walks 
and Teelings hit, setting the stage 
for a big inning. But Swenson's 
roller forced Freddie Hall at the 
plate- Then the Williams fireman 
let loose a wild pitch which en- 
abled Bren Teeling to score. The 
Williams shortstop let one go 
through him for an error as En- 
tin scored from third.

On Saturday. April 25, the Bow- 
doin Freshman Baseball Team of- 
ficially opened their schedule at 
Garcelon Field. Bates College. The 
Frosh eked out a tight 4-2 victory 
over the Bates Junior Varsity 
baseballers. The game was, how* 
ever, not the first played by Bow- 
doin, as they lost to Deering High 
School last week, and beat Ed- 
ward Little of Auburn, by a score 
fit 19-8. 

Bowdoin scored the first run of 
the game withoQt the benefit of a 
single hit.> Bates' pitcher, Dave 
Kramer issued four bases on balls 
in the second inning. Glenn Saund- 
ers got credit for the RBI as Dan- 
ny Aivinb trbttetl home with the 
initial score. 

• The Bates JV's evened the count 
in the third inning when with one 
gone, the hurler Kramer drew a 
walk, advanced to second base 
when the batter Nichols reached 
on an infield error. A single by 
Riley loaded the bases and the ty- 
ing margin crossed the plate when 
Hebb forced Riley at second in an 
attempt for a double play. 

The Frosh scored twice more in 
the fifth on three Bates mjacujs) 
topped by Alvino's run-scoring 
single into left center. - T 

Bates scored their final run of 
the game when Webber singled 
with one out in the sixth, stole 
second, and came home on a single 
to right by Millett. 

The Cubballers closed the gap by 
adding an insurance run in the 
top of the ninth when second- 
sacker Dex Morse singled to right 
center and was sacrificed to sec- 
ond an a fine bunt down the third- 
base line by Glenn Saunders. Newt 
Stowell then delivered a wind- 
blown double over the left-fielder's 
head which scored Morse from 
second. Incidentally, Stowell got 
the only extra-base hit of the game 
and the deciding hit as Bates was 
ahead in hits, going into the ninth. 

Eddie Callahan pitched the 
route for Bowdoin as he gave up 
only six scratch singles all the 
way. He struck out two, walked 
four, and hit a Bates batsman. 
Kramer also went the distance for 
Bates, striking out ten Bowdoin 
batters and giving up seven free

The varsity tracksters scored a 
decisive 83% - 49& win over the 
University of Vermont at Wfnttier 
FteU Jast Saturday. A s-.veep in 
the hammer by Haviland. Adams, 
and Robinson in the initial event 
set the pattern of White domin- 
ance. The White scored in every 
event except the high hurdles and 
the high jump. 

The Polar Bear weightmen com- 
pletely overpowered the Vermont- 
ers. John Vette led Haviland and 
Turner to a sweep in th* shot. Ron 
Tripp won the javilin, and Turner, 
the discus. 

Eddie Dunn made his best jump 
eyer, posting 21' 1" to win. Charlie 
Towle was close behind with a 
2C 11" leap. 

On the track, Larry Wilkins, 
White captain, missed the college 
record by a hair with a 49.7 quar- 
ter with nobody even close to him. 
Wilkins, Jay Goldstein, who also 
won the 100. and Jon Scarpino 
swept the 220. 

Teddie Richards and True Mill- 
er rah away with the mile event, 
the former winning in 4:33.7 with 
a. last lap kick allowing Mosman 
of Vermont to set the pace. 

The most interesting competi- 
tion of the dav was Squint Moran's 
stride for stride battle with Norm 
Picard of Vermont in the two mile. 
Picard won by a stride after a 
firM battle. 

The high point man for the Pol- 
ar Bears again was Captpin Larry 
Wilkins with three firsts in the 
440. 220, and low hurdles.

Netmen Subdue 
Babson; Fall 
To Tufts; MIT 

This weekend, the White tennis 
squad opened their spring cam- 
paign with a match at MIT. 
Thursday. The White netmen who 
had little practice prior to the Bos- 
ton trip found themselves over- 
whelmed by the men from Carre- 
bridge who had recently returned 
from a Southern tour. The score 
of the match was Bowdoin-0, 
M. I. T.-9. The following day the 
Polar Bears faced Tufts and with 
a little more experience and con- 
fidence in themselves could have 
turned the tide. Five of the nine 
matches went the full three sets, 
with the Jumbos wining all of 
these marathons. 

Saturday, the netmen travelled 
to Wellesly where they met Bab- 
son. The White this time was on

probably try any method to re-

BOW stands it is ridiculously simple 
for anyone to lift a college book. 
All he need do is sign any ones 
name to the charge slip and dis- 
appear along with the book never 
to be aeen again. The rushed desk 
staff c3 M hardly be ex rk ected to 
know the name of everyone in the 
college. The best solution it seems 
to me would be to use the library 
card system used by most public 
libraries. This would be faster and, 
Once Instituted, cheaper as there 
would be no need to nil out a sep- 
arata little charge booklet for each 
book which is later thrown away. 
The book in turn would always be 
Charged to someone who exists. 
This person would actually have 
the book too, unless he loses his 
card. If he is made responsible for 
whatever is charged to him I imag- 
ine he will lose no time in report- 
ing it This system usually works 
with a coded steel stamp on the 
card and the charge process can 
•11 take place with one bang of 
the Ast on the machine, or the 
borrower if he is fcc'n sneaking 
out the side door. 

On exhibit at the library now 
are the books bought with the one- 
hundred dollars given to us by

of books today when you notice 
how small a pile of books a hun- 
dred bills will purchase. Each de- 
partment was allowed to select 
some of the titles and there are 
some real wonders there. 

The other day a mother of one 
of the students. Fran Fuller, was 
royally entertained by two de- 
partments. Raised in Georgia Mrs. 
Fuller first sat through an eight 
o'clock government class on the 
mess the south is making of the 
integration problem. At eleven- 
thirty it was intimated in English

conscious of anything having hap- 
pened in the world since the Civil 
War. Mrs. Fuller took this like a

through the application procedures

six. seven, and eight men in their 
class are recipients of Alumni 
Fund Scholarships. 

Nine men have made varsity 
squad this year. Among this group 
are David Cole and Gerard Havi- 
land who hold awards in two 
sports. Cole, of Lexington, Mass., 
»iu-n«»d hi* in football and hockey 
and Haviland, from Weymouth, 
Mass., who earned his in football 
and track. 

John Moore of Skowhegan was 
elected co-captain of next win- 
ter's varsity rifle team. He la also 
a James Bowdoin Scholar and on 
the Dean's List. Charles Towle of 
Springdale, a specialist in the low 
hurdles and dashes, and sprinter 
Michael Coughlin of Augusta were 
members of the track team. Paul 
Lynn of Melrose. Mass. played 
both center and wing on the hock- 
ey team. These men are typical of 
the fine combination of athlete and 
scholar that Bowdoin is proud of. 

The newest addition to the long 
line of entering classes boasts 
thirty-six scholarship owners of 
Alumni Fund Scholarships. The 
Class of 1962 seems Well on its 
way to being one of the best class- 
es Bowdoin has ever matriculated. 

Freshman Class Exceptional 

Included In the thirty-six are 
Laszlo Dudas of Bangor and Hun- 
gary, who was elected honorary 
freshman soccer captain; Richard 
Sawyer of Augusta, who won the 
Fairbanks Prize Speaking Contest 
in February; an excellent swim- 
mer in Philip Austin of Fresno, 
Calif.; and a potential basketball 
great, William Cohen who scored 
39 points against the University of 
Maine in Portland team on Jan- 
uary 13. Many football praajslcts 
for the varsity in the coming years 
are members of the freshman class. 
These men include Alumni Fund 
Scholarship holders Dan Alvino, 
Gerard Francoeur, Michael Pan- 

teleakos. David Barron. Granville 
Magee, John Tolan, Charles Spe- 
leotis, and David Fernald. 

Prospects for the varsity hockey 
team next year include Donald 
Jelly. Ronald Famigliettl. and Ga- 
vin Pilton. 

All told, eight freshmen won 
numerals in football, one in soc- 
cer, two in cross country, one in 
swimming, six in basketball, three 
in hockey, and three in track. Al- 
lowing for duplication, twenty-two 
of the thirty-six men have been 
awarded numerals, without count- 
ing the spring sports. 

The Bowdoin Alumni Fund and 
the Bowdoin Alumni have done a 
real good Job in the past years and 
each students thanks should go to 
this fine organization for helping 
to put the college in the class in 
the class It is today. 

Bearce Lecture . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

nation when the genius changed so 
much from year to year. Swift 
pointed out that the most contin- 
uous traits in the Anglo-Saxon 
were the physical features and im- 

By the end of the nineteenth 
century, most of the strains of the 
Anglo-Saxon character ideal were 
disappearing. Some prominent 
humorists of the turn of the cen- 
tury lampooned the Anglo-Saxon 
ideal. Gilbert, of Gilbert and 
Sullivan, in "Patience," spoofs 

Anglo-Saxon character. In "Alice 
in Wonderland." Lewis Carroll de- 
scribed a hare who ran up to 
Alice, clapping his hands and skip- 
ping up and down. When Alice 
asked what his movements signi- 
fied, the hare replied that they 
were Anglo-Saxon movements. 

Coming up to present, Profes- 
sor Bearce discussed a novel by 
Agnes Wilson, one of England's 
Angry Young Men. The novel, 
titled "Anglo-Saxon Attitudes," is 
in many ways a parable. Although 
tne m«un €iM»r«cici* asv niitoi i&n», 
they are each representative' of 
some type of British character 
through the years. Through the 
discovery of the tomb of a fictic- 
ious Saint, and a pagan idol which 
had been placed secretly in the 
tomb by the son of the leading 
historian, the reader witnesses the 
complete downfall and corruption 
of a man's life. The author at- 
tempts to destroy the feeling of 
smugness held by Englishmen to- 
day due to England's glorious past 
by pointing out the corruption of 
everyday British life. 

Professor Bearce concluded his 
inaugural and final lecture for 
the year to be presented by the 
Student Curriculum Committee by 
suggesting several in Formative 
books on Anglo-Saxon character. 

"Diabolique" To Be Shown 
Twice; Friday - Saturday 

According to the theory of evo- 
lution, it took thousands of years 
to make man from a monkey. A 
woman can reverse the process in 
Ave minutes. 

The Department of Romance 
Languages and the Student Union 
Committee present the film "Dia- 
bolique" a French film with Eng- 
lish subtitles The film will be 
offered on Friday, May 1 at 7:00 
p.m. and Saturday, May 2 at 6:30 
p.m. There will be one show each 
night in Smith Auditorium with 
an admission charge of 25c. 

The picture is directed by Henri- 
Georges Clouzot; music by Georges 
van Parys, and features Simone 
Signoret, Vera Clouzot, Paul Meu- 
risse, Charles Vanel. 

Director Clouzot har gained a 
reputation for his handling of the 
gruesome and macabre (Le Cor- 
beau, Manon, Wages of Fear) and 
in "Diabolique" he has left no 
stone unturned. Here, a sadistic 
schoolmaster in a badly run boys 
school on his staff has a mistress 
whom he beats, and a wife whom 
he has tormented into a sickly, 
neurotic wreck. 

In an odd combination of co- 
operation, the mistress and wife 
Join together, drown their mutual 
tormentor in the bath tub and toss 
his body into the swimming pool. 
That, however, is only the begin- 
ning; the swimming pool is 
drained, but the body is missing; 
the suit he was wearing is mys- 
teriously delivered, cleaned and 

pressed; a shadowy face appears 
at a window in a recent school 
photograph. Clouzot continues to 
stick one chilling pin after another 
into his audience, until, in the cli- 
max when the cat is let out of 
the bag, he lets loose with a bar- 
rage of sadistic horror that would 
have made Edgar Allen Poe 

The picture has been described 
as follows: ". . . one of the dan- 
diest mystery dramas that haa 
shown here ... a pip of a mur- 
der thriller, ghost story and char- 
acter play rolled into one . . . Don't 
expect us to tell the secrets of this 
diabolical film. Let us merely as- 
sure you that the writing and the 
visual construction are superb, and 
the performance by top-notch 
French actors on the highest level 
of sureness and finesse." Bosley 
Crowther. NEW YORK TIMES.

original proposal the ration was 3 
to 2. The council changed the plan 
to 2 council members and 3 non- 
council members on these commit- 
tees. The council also provided 
for both council and non-council 
membership on the Blanket Tax 
and College Lecture Committees 

The second of the series of Arc- 
tic lectures will be given this eve- 
ning at 8:15 in Pickard Theater, 
by Mrs. Marie Edward Stafford. 

Mrs. Stafford, who is Admiral 
Robert E. Peary's daughter, will 
talk on her father's expedition to 
the North Pole. Now a resident of 
Brunswick, she was bom farther 
north than any other white per- 
son, and has followed her father, 
Admiral' Peary, on trips in the 
Arctic region, although riot fol- 
lowing him «n his glorious and 
perilous "trip to the pole." 

Tomorrow the final lecture in 
honor of "Bowdoin's" Admiral 
Peary will be held by Commander 
Anderson of (he nuclear-powered 
submarine Nautilus, also at 8:15 in 
Pickard Theater. Commander An- 
derson will speak on "Submarine 
Polar Exploration." As we all 
know. Commander Anderson's 
Nautilus made history's first un- 
dersea voyage across the North 
Pole under the polar ice cap last 
summer. A native of Bakersville, 
Tenn., he was graduated from the 
U. S. Naval Academy in 1942. Dur- 
ing World W«r II he took part 
in eleven submarine war patrols 
as an officer aboard the Tarpon, 
the Narwhal, and the Trutta. 

During the Korean action Com- 
mander Anderson was command- 
ing officer of the Wahoo. In 1955 
he became head of the Tactical 
Department at the U. S. Navy 
Submarine School at New London, 
Conn. He subsequently served in 
the- Division of Reactor Develop- 
ment of the Atomic Energy Com- 
mission. In 1957 he became com- 
manding officer of the Nautilus. 

He holds the Legion of Merit, 
the Bronze Star Medal, and the 
Submarine Combat Pin with one 
silver star and three bronze stars.

COAST. THE INNER which has a student body of 22,- 


mencement of 1948. 

The use of the three action 
areas, the inner-stage, the upper- 
stage and forestage is the type of 
format popularly in use in Shake- 
speare's own time. This use is the 
treatment traditionally accorded 
to classical English plays by the 
Masque and Gown. 

The action of the play will be 
continuous, that is, the scene and 
act breaks will not bring down 
the curtain, and the action will 
move from one scene to another 
without a break. There will be one 
intermission which will be placed 
between the third and fourth acts. 
The first three acts of the play 
alternate pretty regularly from 
the court to the tavern to the 
rebels, wherever they may be. The 
last two acts are largely taken up 
with battle scenes. 

The leading character of the 
play is Sir John r'alstaff, played 
by Dan Calder. Hotspur (John 
Swierzynski) and Prince Hal 
(Tony Power) are two very close 


Sir John is an undegenerate old 
debauchee who is a companion to 
Prince Hal in the earlier parts of 
the play. Later, however, in the 
face of the rebellion, Prince Hal 
begins to take his place as Prince 
of Wales, finally proving his merit 
in battle. 

Hotspur is the principal leader 
of the rebellion. He. with the 
Earls of Northumberland and 
Worcester plan to overthrow King 
Henry IV and replace him with 
Edmund Mortimer, the Earl of 

Mortimer, as the play opens, 
has been captured by Owen Glen- 
dower, the leader of the Welsh- 
men, who are trying to assert 
Welsh independence. Later, the 
Percy family (Worcester, North- 
umberland and Hotspur) are an- 
gered by the attitude of King 
Henry IV since they believe them- 
selves largely responsible for hav- 
ing placed him on the throne and 
deposing' Richard II. 

Worcester brings out the fact 
that Richard had named Morti- 
mer his heir. It , is from this bc-

Columbia University Graduate 
School. While he was at Bowdoin, 
Snow taught in a grammar school 
at Cundy's Harbor through a spe- 
cial arrangement with the admin- 
istration whereby he had to walk 
all the way to Brunswick every 
now and then to hand in papers 
and take exams. In spite of this 
time given over to teaching and 
walking, he was elected to Phi 
Beta Kappa and graduated summa 
cum laude. 

After he finished at Columbia, 
Snow began his career as a noma-

situdes led him through the class- 
rooms of New York University,

Fraternities; Observations 
And Suggestions 

A week ago most of this column waa used to tell our read- 
ers why we disagreed with a plan to radically alter Bowdoin'a 
fraternity system. We believe that such disagreement was vi- 
tally necessary. We are acutely aware, however, that too much 
disagreement at the expense of constructive ideas is a dan- 
gerous thing/. Some positive suggestions concerning the future 
of Bowdoin's fraternities are in order. They are made in the 
light of two facts; The first is that it is now fact that there will 
be certain physical changes in Bowdoin College within the next 
several years. In the spring of 195 7 the governing boards of 
the College made a policy decision to increase the si2e of the 
student body to 925". The realization of this decision is con- 
tingent on the raising of sufficient capital funds, estimated at 
I 5 million dollars. The change will not affect us as students 
but if we regard ourselves as Bowdoin men, our interest in our 
Alma.Mater should not. disappear upon our graduation. The 
second fact is that Bowdoin fraternities are far from perfect. 

Our first suggestion is in the form of a reiteration of a pro- 
posal presented in one letter to the editor column a year ago. 
Since the college »a going to expand, the increased enrollment 
will involve structural changes in the fraternity system. We see 
three-possible' courses. New fraternities can be brought onto 
the campus, the freshmen or some other part of the student 
body can be gulled out of the fraternities, or the independent 
group could be enlarged. The possibility of absorbing the in- 
crease into the present fraternity structure seems to be a remote 
one, both for physical and sociological reasons. 
Form A Committee 

Since it is impossible to gaze into a crystal ball and come 
up with the soundest change, we suggest the following. A 
committee should- be formed in the near future for the purpose 
of making a detailed study of the fraternity systems at liberal 
arts colleges comparable to Bowdoin. On this committee would 
be represented students, faculty, alumni, and the governing 

It is our feeling that a first hand study of other systems -is 
necessary if Bowdoin is to make an intelligent decision con- 
cerning the future course of its fraternities. Once we make the 
step there will be. no turning back. Let us not merely take 
the word of the Administrations of other colleges. What Wil- 
liams and Amherst consider an outstanding success, we might 
consider a dismal failure. This suggestion is now a year old. 
We hope it will receive "some consideration in the near future. 
Student Responsibility 

Our second suggestion is perhaps a more difficult one to 
implement. It is completely in the hands of the students. If 
radical changes in the fraternity structure at Bowdoin are to be 
prevented, the reasons for implementing those changes must be 
eradicated. We believe that the evils of fraternities can be 
removed by working through the existing fraternity structure. 
A notable step in the right direction was taken last year with 
the abolition of hazing* The first try at orientation achieved 
varying degrees of success and failure. The students should be 
commended for their beginning, but it is only a bare beginning. 
Greater success will be achieved when the upperclassmen de- 
velop a genuine desire to help and not remain apathetically in 
the background. The orientation program must be designed 
to encourage this attitude. There are several possible ways to 
do this. The freshman advisor system should be strengthened 
by selecting only qualified upperclassmen and carefully outlin- 
ing their duties before the program commenced. A more care- 
ful watch should be kept on the scholastic work of the new stu- 
dents. The orientation program can be the key to a new posi- 
tive approach to student life. We hope the fraternities take full 
advantage of it. 


The improvements do not have to stop with orientation 
with the orientation program. The entire fraternity would pre- 
sent a much better appearance if its members wore coats and 
ties at the evening meal. As President Coles mentioned at an 
informal discussion in the D.K.F.. house on April 18, "there 
are even some houses on the campus whose members do not 
wear coats and ties- for dinner." Much needs- to be done to 
improve fraternity, alumni relations. The brothers should make 
a greater effort to welcome alumni when they returned on foot- 
ball weekends. 

Bowdoin fraternities have come to a crossroads. If they 
correct their faults, they will not have to worry about their 
life expectancy. But if they continue their present ways, the 
day will come when radical surgery will be performed. It will 
then be too late. Let us never forget that the fraternity, like 
anything else in life, is a two way proposition. The initiative 
for our first suggestion must come from the administration. How- 
ever, the carrying out of the second suggestion is our obligation* 
If we do not fulfill our obligations and make the necessary 
changes, we cannot criticize nor expect to have any influence 
with anyone who wishes to do the changing. for us. 

April 26, 1969 
To the Editor: 

"I should like to thank the 
editors of the Orient for their 
kindness in publishing my views 
on what is obviously a delicate 
matter, and for their considera- 
tion in publishing them without 

Since I did not write with the 
student in mind as reader some 
misunderstanding was inevitable, 
and I should like to attempt to 
relieve it. 

First, I should have said ex- 
plicitly that in speaking of the 
strength of fraternities I was not 
speaking of the collective strength 
of fraternities in opposition to the 
administration, but only of the 
internal strength of Individual 
fraternities — the counterpart of 
what in a person we call strength 
of character in distinction from 
mere physical strength. 

Where the issue is treated in 
terms of a simple opposition of 
forces, my point can hardly make 
much sense and must appear ex- 
ternal and abstract. But I remind 
those who so think that the con- 
flict which absorbes them is one 
which occurs within an institution 
which could never have come into 
existence, perpetuated itself, or 
achieved its present distinction 
apart from social and humanistic 
ideals, which have no interpreta- 
tion in terms of the mere opposi- 
tion of forces. In failing to ac- 
knowledge this deeper presupposi- 
tion, which I make central, it is 
their thought, not mine, that lacks 

Second, there- is the matter of 
my assertions of fact. I am entire- 
ly aware that- in mitte"* of fact I 
may be in part mistaken. But in 
view of the considerable agree- 
ment on them and the lack of 
agreement as to where my error 
lies, it would be odd if I did not 
have mbm point. And it may be 
that this is enough for my argu- 
ment, whieh was concerned with 
the predicament of only one group 
of students. 

It is further entirely possible 
that there is no statement on this 
matter that would meet with gen- 
eral approval. For not only do 
houses varv. but in this area facts 
tend to shape up as one would 
have them. 'One sees what he 
expects to see. indeed what he 
wants to sea: and the remainder 
he ignores or explains away. It 
might seem that statistics would 
serve better. But statistics are 
empty until internreted: and on 
this there Is bound to be as much 
disagreement as on facts. 

If anyone wants to challenge or 
to soften my assertions of fact, he 
is welcome. Perhaps fraternities 
are not as divisive as I have been 
led to suppose thev are; perhaps 
thev are more so. But the pn>blem 
facing the College as a nuaUty in- 
stitution still remain If I have 
assisted in defining it more ac-

Robert E. Gahringer 

To the Editor: 

Last week's editorial criticism 
of Mr. Gahringer's "basic philoso- 
phy" was a masteroiece of mis- 
representation and illogic. Appar- 
ently the editor completely mis- 
understood what Mr. Gahrinrer 
was proposing. , for he remarks 

Spanish Film 

To Be Shown 

On May 9th 

The second of a two-part series 
of foreign Alms will be shown 
Saturday, May 9th at 6:30 and 
8:30. This film "The Strange Pas- 
sion" is Spanish with English sub- 
titles will be presented by the De- 
partment of Romance Languages 
and the Student Union Committee. 
The showing will be at Smith Audi- 
torium as usual. 

The film is described as follows: 
"One of Bunuel's subtlest and most 
surprising works. On the surface, 
the story of a girl who marries an 
apthologically jealous man who 
eventually tries to kill her; be- 
neath it, a deeply probing analy- 
sis of the inward obsessions- of a 
paranoid, or his distorted outlook 
on reality. The rich middle-class 
setting in which this is played out 
allows Bunuel to achieve some 
ironic, sometimes withering mom- 
ents of social criticism. One se- 
quence ... is among, the most 
exciting things that Bunuel has 
ever done." 

* "Strange Passion" is directed 
and written by Luis Bunuel, pho- 
tographed by Gabriel Figueroa, and 
produced by Oscar Canclgers. Mu- 
sic by Luis Hernandez Breton. It 
is from the story "El" bv Mercedes 
Pinto, adapted by Luis Alcoriza. 
starring Arturo de Cordova and 
Delia Garce s . 

that he does "not believe that you 
can 'arrange' better motivations 
and more natural loyalties 
through various mechanisms." Ac- 
tually, no such "mechanisms" are 
proposed. What is proposed is that 
the students group themselves ac- 
cording to some common basis, 
such as interests, instead of being 
thrown together completely at ran- 
dom, as is the case under our pres- 
ent rushing system. There is noth- 
ing "mechanical" or artificial about 
this plan: rather, it is the present 
system which is artificial, for it 
generates mostly, heterogeneous 
groups having no common basis 
for existence. 

Second, the editor says that 
"Mr. Gahrincer feels' that the 
weakly motivated person will 
change his ways in nouses whieh 
become typed through a. system 
of regulations." Here again the 
editor completely misinterprets MrT 
Gahringer's proposal. Mr. Gah- 
ringer does indeed seem to feel 
that increased motivation will re- 
sult from students grouping them- 
selves according to interests, but 
we do not recall that he ever 
proposed any rigid, externally-im- 
posed "system of regulations" to 
"type" the houses. Any "typing" 
that is done will have to be done 
by the houses themselves: if thev 
don't want to recruit a certain 
type of student, certainly no one 
is going to force them to. 

Third, the editor says that 
"what this unmotivated person 
really needs is to rub elbows with 
highly motivated people. Wheth- 
er they all have the same voca- 
tional interest is not important 
.... Under the present system 
unmotivated and motivated per- 
sons come into contact in the same 
fraternities." Certainly they do: 
the unmotivated people do rub el- 
hows with the motivated ones But 
do they become more highly mo- 
tivated thereby? No, usually it 
works the other way: when the 
motivated people come in contact 
with the unmotivated people, it is 
usually the motivated ones who 
change, who lose all ambition and 
become infected by the "Oh, well, 
what the hey" attitude. Freshmen 
are often quite highly motivated, 
but by the time they are sopho- 
mores, many of them have degen- 
erated into a state of slothful in- 
difference. People are stimulated 
to higher motivation, not by just 
anybody, but by people with whom 
they have something in common. 
Will a philosopher be stimulated 
to greater philosophical accom- 
plishments by a football fan? 

But the editor goes on the com- 
plain that Mr. Gahringer has com- 
mitted "the grave sin of omission. 
He confines his paper to a discus- 
sion of one type of student only." 
Well, if he were to discuss every 
type of student, his paper would 
be so voluminous that the Orictit 
wouldn't be able to print it. He 
did indeed confine his paper to a 
discussion of one type of student — 
the type whom he felt the collage 
should be most concerned about. 
It seems to us that in this esse 
the editor is lust searching about 
frantically for something more to 
split hairs about. 

The editor then criticizes delay- 
ed rushing as "putting freshmen 
under pressure for a greater 
length of time .... We would 
have a "veneer of glad hands and 
smiling faces for a whole year." 
But perhaps not. Perhaps, with a 
year to scan the freshman flock, 
the upperclassmen would be more 
careful and selective in giving out 
bids. Moreover, it is rather diffi- ' 
cult to keep up pretenses for a 
whole year. If any fraternity were 
putting up a front, any reason- 
ably intelligent freshman would 
soon perceive It. 

Finally, the editor completely 
avoids the central issue of Mr. 
Gahringer's paner. The editor con- 
cludes by happily urging the fra- 
ternities to get on the stick, 
strengthen relations with the 
alumni, strengthen the faculty ad- 
viser system, and encourage the 
freshmen to participate In extra- 
curricular activities. This is all 
very fine, but it does nothing to 
solve the central problem, name- 
ly, how can we get unmotivated 
students with potential to pro-

Along with the mail trains has

tution. Once the letter had been 
written the student had two 
choices. Go to bed or study. The 
few that remained up would gen- 
erally tune to WBZ for restful, 
cultural, type background music 
in the form of "The' American Air-

replaced by a non restful, non cul-

correctly a pop commercial show.)

the static comes in much better.

During the past -weekend several 
strange creatures were observed 
frolicing among the squirrels, ja- 
daloons, and campus dogs. When 
one was brought to earth it turn- 
ed out to be a Wheelockcollege

of a large flock that had flown 
north to neat in Memorial Hall 
Saturday night. The Wheelock- 
college Warbler appears to be all 
of one sex. and nourishes itself on 
scraps picked up at charitable fra- 
ternity houses. They tend to be 
clannish, and some objected stren- 
uously to being seperated from 
the, herd. A large pack was noted 
at the Beta House where they 
seemed to be somewhat affected 
bv music and other things. As I 
climbed back, up in the rigging I 
noticed that at the stroke of one, 
thev all turned into the Eagle.

by Bill Skeltoo 

Saturday afternoon on a hot 
dusty Cambridge track, the Bow- 
doin trackmen edged MIT in a 
close duel meet. The score was 72 
to 63 but the meet went down 
to the final event, the discus, 
where a first and second by Deane 
Turner and John Vette sewed up 
the win. As usual, Captain Larry 
Wilkins was the star for the 
White. The powerful senior won 
the 440 in 51.1. the low hurdles, 
and the 220. True Miller easily 
outran the best MIT had to offer 
in the two-mile and Ed Dunn 
leaped a Rood 21 feet 2 inches to 
take the* broad lump. Tom Rieger 
tied for first in the pole vault to 
add a few more points to the 
Bowdoin cause. Jay Goldstein, a 
fast improving sorinter, picked up 
a pair of seconds in the dashes 
Captain-elect Jon Green ran ahead 
of the MIT man in the half-mile, 
but was outsprinted in the last 
few yards and had to settle for 
second. Another close race occur- 
red in the mile where Ted Rich- 
ards was nipped at the tape. 

It was in the weight events, 
however, that Bowdoin really 
dominated. Besides the discus vic- 
tory, Ron Tripp won the javelin 
with a 174 foot 1 inch throw and 
John Vette took the shot put. 
Gerry Haviland led throughout 
the hammer throw but was best- 
ed on the last round by Nichol- 
son of MIT with a 158 foot toss. 
In such a close meet it is the team 
which collects the third places 
which usually wins and Bowdoin 
picked uo ten thirds in fifteen 
events. Third place scorers for the 
White were Jon Scarpino in the 
100. Ed Bean in the 880. True 
Miller in the mile, Ted Richards 

in the two-mile. Sam Elliot in the 
high hurdles. Deane Turner in the 
javelin. Gerry Haviland in the 
shot put, Pete Scott in the high 
jump, Dave Titus in the hammer, 
and Ed Dunn in the pole vault. 
YVtaninjr Season 

The victory allows Coach Sabas- 
teanski to enter the state meet 
this Saturday boasting a winning 
season. The, White trackmen have 
beaten Amherst, Vermont, and 
MIT with B •>. handing them 
their one setback. 

State Meet 

The Maine State Track Meet 
will be held this coming weekend 
at Colby College in Waterville, 
Maine. With such stars as speed- 
ster Rudy Smith in the quarter- 
mile and the sprinting events and 
John Douglas in the broad jump 
and the hurdles. Bates College 
would seem to be the favorite. 
However, the University of Maine 
has the overall balance and depth 
which is needed to overcome the 
strong Bobcat aggregation. 
Polar Bear Kntrles 

Although the White does not 
appear to have the manpower to 
overtake either Maine or Bates, 
it does have many fine, individual' 
performers who will bear close 
watching during the long day. Sup-

220, and the low hurdles. Out- 
standing weightman Gerry Havi- 
land who has fared very well dur- 
ing the outdoor season should make, 
his presence felt, especially in the, 
hammer. Captain -elect Jay Greem 
should be rated one of the fav- 
orites in the half-mile on the 
strength of his performances up 
to date. 

On Saturday, May 2, .the Bow- 
doin Freshman baseball team drop- 
ped their first contest of the young 
season to Exeter Academy by the 
slim score of 7-5. It was only 
the second game played by the 
Cub players as the games with 
Ctelby and Hebron were rained out 
last- week. 

Fred Hill, after suffering from 
the first-inning jitters, settled 
down and allowed only three un- 
earned runs in the last eight inn- 
ings that he pitched. Two walks 
and an error produced four runs 
which the Frosh were unable to 
equalize until the fifth inning. Ex- 
eter scored their first run on a 
theft of home by the first-sacker. 

In the fifth, Bowdoin scored five 
runs on well-timed hits' by Dan

Frosh, Varsity 
Golfers Lose 
To Colby Team 

The Bowdoin Freshman team 
played its first match of the sea- 
son and the Varsity its third 
against two overpowering teams 
fromWaterville. The varsity lost 
4% to 2 V while the freshmen 
were shut out 6 to 0. Captain 
Tom McGovern and Paul Lynn 
had the only two wins of the af- 
ternoon. Tom Won his match on 
the sixteenth hole, where he had a 
four stroke lead, while Paul 
clinched the eighteenth hole for 
his -win. Jack Houston added a 
half a point as he tied his oppon- 

Unlike the varsity, the freshmen 
had a total point count of six. 
Each of the four individual match- 
es counted a point, and then best 
ball in both of the foursomes add 
the other two points. The var- 
sity, on the other hand played 
seven individual matches, each 
worth one point. 

Team Results 

Varsity — Bill Mason lost 6 and 

T*ie Bowdoin Freahman Track 
team, obviously thriving in the 
warm, sunnv weather at Tech 
Field on the banks of Beaton's 
Charles River, scored an easy vic- 
tory over MIT. last Saturday 

Coach Frank Sabasteanski's 
young charges seemed ready to 
finish the season on a strong note, 
after shaking the crippling effects 
of a cold early spring. 

Wendell Sides continued his un- 
defeated skein outdoors by. run- 
ning away from the pack in a tor- 
rid' 440. Pete Mone scored nine 
important points by taking three 
seconds, in the broad Jumr and 
the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Boyd 
Finch easily captured- a first in the 
high hurdles and a second in the 
pole vault. In the 880, Pete Gillies 
turned in his outstanding perfor- 
mance of the spring season with 
a decisive victory. 

The Polar Cub weightmen were 
equally successful. Howie Hall won 
both the hammer and the shot put, 
along with a second in the discus. 
Paul Robinson added eight point* 
with a victory in the. javelin, and 
second place in the shot put. 

5 (thirteenth hole); Dave Hum- 
phrey lost 4 and 2 (sixteenth 
hole); Tom McGovern won 4 and 
2 (sixteenth hole); Newt Spun- 
lost 4 and 3 (fifteenth hole); Jack 
Houston tied; Lee Hitchcock lost 
a and 5 (thirteenth hole); Paul 
Lynn won 1. up (eighteenth holej. 

Freshmen — John Ossollnski 
lost 8 and 6 (twelfth hole); Art 
Freedman lost 9' and 7 (eleventh 
hole); Pete Karofsky lost 3 and 
1 (seventeenth hole); Bob Free- 
man lost 6 and 5 ( thirteenth hole) . 

The afternoon was relatively 
warm for the first nine holes, but 
a strong wind hampered the long; 
shots on the back nine. The turf, 
was arid, providing for a great 
deal of roll, but the putting wast 
hazardous, especially on the down- 
hill greens. This didn't seem to 
bother Colby, as four of their men 
shot in the Seventies. Bowdoin's 
Paul Lynn also ended up in that 
bracket with a six over par 76. 

During the past weekend, the 
Bowdoin College Sailing Team 
( '«ntinued its Winning ways by cap- 
turing the Fius trophy at Tufts. 
The White won the meet, titled 
the New England States and In- 
ternational Small College Meet, by 
staving off a late University of 
Toronto rally for a 92-90 win. 

The first day of racing con- 
cluded with Carl Olsson and Joe 
Carven showing the way in both 
the "A" and "B" divisions respec- 
tively. Carven had three firsts 
and a second and Olsson had two 
firsts, a second and a fourth in 
four races, to take a '59-51 lead 
over second place Toronto. 

On Sunday, Bowdoin's lead was 
cut to one point at the end of the 
sixth race when Olsson took a 
fifth place and Carven was dis- 
qualified. In the seventh and final 
race, run in a wind with gusts up 
to thirty-five miles per hour, Ols- 
son took a third and Carven, a 
second to preserve the victory. So 
strong was the wind during this 
race that the Carven boat was 
very nearly upset in a downwind >

Dr. Hartley To 
Serve As I960 
Olympic MR 

Dr. Daniel F. Hanley of Bruns- 
wick will be one of the two doc- 
tors who will serve as the medical 
staff' for the United States Olym- 
pic team when it competes at 
Rome, Italy, from August 25 to 
September U, I960, it was an- 
nounced by T. Nelson Metcalf, 
chairman of the United States 
Olympic medical and. training 
services committee. 

Dr. Hanley has been College 
Physician at Bowdoin College for 
the past 12 years. A native of 
Amesbury, Mass., and. a graduate 
of Bowdoin in 1939, he is also Di- 
rector of the. Maine Medical As- 
sociation, made up of soma 800 
members. He is a member of the 
staff' at the Mercy Hospital in 
Portland and at the Bath Me- 
morial Hospital. 

He received his M.D. degree 
from Columbia. University of Phy- 
sicians and Surgeons in 1943 and 
interned t at Boston City Hospital. 
During. World War IL he- was a 
major in the United States Army 
Medical Corps and saw service in 
the China.Burrna. India Theater. 

Dr. Hartley, who is also- editor 
of the Maine Medical Journal, has 
conducted' clinics, on athletic in- 
juries both at. Bowdoin and at, the 
Maine Medical Center in Portv 
land. He feel* that the present 
long, cleat in the football shoe is 
the cause of many unnecessary 
leg injuries that may lead to in- 
fections. It would be simple, he 
thinks, to design a cleat the* 
would avoid practically all such 

He also insists that all Bow- 
doin football players wear sus- 
pension helmets that will absorb 
the shock of a hard blow — in 
other words, the head and the 
helmet never come into direct con- 

Congratulations to Doe Hanley on his appointment as one/ 
of the two doctors who will serve on the medical staff, for the 
U.S. Olympic team in the 1960 event to be held at Rome, Italy. 
This honor is quite a distinction for our college physician who. 
for many years has served White athletic clubs to the best of hi* 
ability. There is probably, no better liked man on campus than- 
Doc Hanley, and all of u* on the Orient SRorts staff want to wish 
him the best -of luck in hi* future endeavors. 

Sauluuj, Again! 
There seems to be no end to tbe skill of this year's Varsity 
Sailing Team, as they keep on piling up victory after victory. 
This time- our Boy* brought back the Fius Trophy, symbol of 1 
supremacy in New England' small college sailing. Wherever 
our sailors- have gone they have done credit to the name of* 
Bowdoin College. The New- England Championships are rapidly 
approaching, and Car*: Olsson, Joe Carven, Charlie Wing, anoV 
Lymie Cousens will be right, there to continue their winning 
ways. It is our hope that the members of the College recognize 
the fine job these representative* are doing. 

Bad Weather 
The end. of the last week saw- many of our games post- 
poned or cancelled because of rain. It is too bad that the' 
weathtr could not have been a little more pleasant especially 
since these games were scheduled for home. It is the time oft 
year when all of us like to watch. our teams in action during the* 
beautiful May afternoons. It means a lot to our men to have 
their fellow classmates sitting in the stands giving them verbal' 
support. Let's try to do this for the remainder of the season. 

We were fortunate) enough, to watch the Varsity Tennis- 
Team perform early this week against Bates. Although the 
team eventually lost the match, there were some outstanding; 
performances during the- afternoon. Bowdoin is fortunate in- 
having a fine tennis player in first man Jerry Fletcher who won- 
hie match. It was also noticed that Bobby Tow did a fine job, 
despite the fact that he developed a cramp in hi* leg early in the 
match. Although it was evident that his leg bothered him and 
somewhat hindered his. fine playing' ability, he came back in hi* 
last set aiter being., behind -four love to take four game* from hie 

Colby Game 
The Colby baseball game, which was postponed last weeli 
because, of raini. will be played- this Friday at Pickard. Field) 
Our team has-been unfortunate this year in losing four ballgames 
by' only, one run,. besides beating the University of Baltimore 
and> William*. We are hoping the tide will turn for these boy* 
and' tharar they enter the State Series* they will end up on top* 

Big lleagues 
With, the arrive! oi. Spring, muoiv of the student*, intereet 
heanbemn focused- on- th« hig league* There seems to be quite 
a reversal of fbrm in the offWt of.a long season. The American 
League picture looks much hrirhter as the Yankees have gotten 
off to their worst start since 11940, when they finished in third 
place. At the three week mark, they were then 6-13; now* the 
Bronx Bombers stand 7-12.

News From Other Colleges 

Scanning through thU week's 
■tack of college publication*, there 
were several article! that caught 
my eye. Some were interesting, 
some educational but others were 
downright peculiar! In reference 
to the latter, this one beats them 

Mather vs. I.F.C. 

Last month, the U. of Mass. fra- 
ternity system was the center of 
harsh administrative criticism. 
President Jean Paul Mather has 
labeled fraternities as "Saturday 
night drinking centers" and has 
told the college's I.F.C. to clean 
up or drastic action will be taken. 
There is no doubt in anyone's mind 
what Mather means by "drastic 
actions." as he had stated in one 
interview that if he feels that it 
is necessary. ' he'll not hesitate to 
close the fraternity houses. Be- 
sides branding fraternities as "im- 
moral Greek societies.'.' he also 
claims that the houses themselves 
are overcrowded, unsafe, and un : 
sanitary. He wants the fraterni- 
ties to improve the physical prop- 
erties of the houses but states that 
this is almost impossible, for 
"many of them can't even pay 
their liquor bills." This leaves 
only one alternative, the fraterni- 
ties will require monetary aid from 
the University which would be, in 
a sense, playing right into Mather's 
hands. He states that, if the Uni- 
versity does finance the fraterni- 
ties, complete control of the social 
privileges win be his end. This will 
mean that the houses will be dry. 

On campus, the reactions to 
President Mather's criticisms are 
mixed. The I. F. C. has now made 
an open break with the adminis- 
tration. They are aware that fra- 
ternity problems are their re- 
sponsibility and have attempted a 
long range plan on improving 
those houses which are in need of 
repair. They consider Mather's 
remarks as gross exaggerations 
and feel that they cannot be 
forces into a "hurried, incomplete 
and unrealistic comprehensive an- 
alysis of the problem." They have 
even gone so far as to challenge 
Mather's authority in coping with 
the situation. On the other hand, 
a student written article in the 
Massachusettts Collegian seems to 
agree with the president's stand 
even though the attack is based 
on "relative facts slanted against 
the fraternity system." The auth- 
or further states that fraternity 
men must face up to the problem 
confronting them and to stop us- 
ing fraternities as "excuses for 
their own individual weaknesses." 

Other than a lot of name call- 
ing from the opposing sides of the 
controversy, nothing much has 
been done to clean up the <U. of 
Massachusetts' fraternities. A 
problem seems to definitely exist 
with their fraternity system, but 
the question now is, under whose 
Jurisdiction are the fraternities, 
Mather's or the I. F. C? Mather 
refuses to say another word on 
the subject. 

As yet, nothing has been done 
to improve the fraternities at the 
U. of Massachusetts. Name calling 
from opposing sides of the con- 
troversy have temporarily ceased 
as the president will not say an- 
other word on the subject until 
next fall when he'll "start mov- 
ing in on the situation." 
Familiar r 

Several months ago, a salesman 
for a men's clothing discount club 
visited some of the Bowdoin fra- 
ternities, advertising his spectacu- 
lar offers. For an initial fee of ten 
dollars, the student was Supposed 
to be entitled to a huge discount 
on future clothing purchases. Now, 

this concern may or may not ex- 
ist, but the sales pitch that these 
fraternities received sounded very 
similar to that of a con man, who 
was trying the exact same routine 
at the U. of Massachusetts' fra- 
ternities. He had visited three fra- 
ternities without attracting any 
suspicion, but the fourth was a 
little more skeptical. They check- 
ed up on the Consumer's Guide 
Company, which he allegedly rep- 
resented and discovered that such 
a company did not exist. The po- 
lice were called, and the con man 
was apprehended at the next house 
he visited. _ 

If the company that visited 
Bowdoin does exist and isn't the 
same one that was on the U. of 
Massachusetts' campus, my well 
meaning article will turn into a 
King size goof. Proof had better 
come, pretty, quickly, as I have a 
gullible, bargain-hunting room- 
mate whose good faith in human 
nature has led him to order a 
summer suit from this concern. 
"Bumble on the Row" 

All hell broke loose Wednesday 
night, when Tufts • experienced 
their second "panty raid" in two 
years. It all started when the 
great Treek World sent its pledges 
over to a nearby girls dorm to 
ignite the rubbish in the "Demp- 
ster Dempster" (?). Upon arrival 
of the Somerville fire fighting ap- 
paratus, a small crowd had as- 
sembled lo cheer on the (ire fight- 
ers as the blaze was brought un- 
der control. The once peaceful ev- 
ening had now been thoroughly 
disrupted, and the spirit of excite- 
ment spread rapidly. 

Trumpets were blown and fire- 
works set off, calling all the cam- 
pus "bookworms" away from their 
studies. A crowd of more than one 
hundred students congregated on 
campus for about a half-hour, and 
then the . "big move" was to the 
girls' dorm, the cry being, "we 
want panties." 

A few of the hardier raiders 
managed to scale the walls while 
their less energetic compatriots 
gained admittance to the dorms 
via the first floor windows, mean- 
while, most of the girls withdrew 
to safety behind closed doors or 
the house mothers' skirts. 

The raid proved to be quite suc- 
cessful until Dean "Spoil-Sport" 
and the local police department ap- 
peared on the scene. The mar- 
auding mob made a hasty exit but 
not before collectine a few "tro- 
phies," which will no doubt cause 
an epidemic of pneumonia among 
the girls unless they're replaced. 
"I Hate Myrna" 

Last week, several interested 

Chapel Talk . . .

not merely the product to be found 
In its style, but one of difference; 
I.e., the associative connotations 
deriviative from its language. 

The example of 1000 monkeys 
banging 1000 typewriters for 1000 
years with the possible result of a 
Shakespearean sonnet would not 
be poetry. Though it might appear 
mechanically to be poetical, it 
would be the product of 1000 an- 
thropoids, not of man. and there- 
fore its meaning would not be real 
in a fertile sense to man. 

Poetic technique is a highly 
stylized "religious chant" in liter- 

Poets have always been regard- 
ed as soothsayers and prophets, 
and have thus been held in high 
esteem due to their vision. Today 
however, we cannot' disregard the 
neglect of poetry. We are near to 
duplicating the fallacy of suppos- 
ing that one kind of language has 
the magic touch to replace all oth- 
ers. Somewhat like the over-em- 
phasizing of poetry in Plato's day, 
today we seem to be replacing 
everything with a scientific and 
mechanical language. 

Today, the^ poets duty in the 
area of "vocalizing" that which is 
in the human spirit might become 
voiceless and lost if we allow it 
to disintegrate. 

students at Swathmore decided to 
form a "Hate Myrna Gillet" club. 
The expressed purpose of this new. 
ly established organization is to 
formulate "cruel epithets and 
subtle insults towards that girl." 
The article, written In all serious- 
ness, didn't proceed to tell what 
Myrna had done to incur the 
wrath of her classmates; but, 
whatever it was, it sure must have 
been a "beaut." The club is ex- 
panding quite rapidly and devoted 
every after-lunch coffee discussion 
to the "non-violent abomination" 
of the poor girl. (Strange???) 
.Reading list 

Hood College has just compiled 
a list of books which are a must 
on every college student's book- 
shelf. For the patriotic few. they 
heartily suggest Rally 'Round the 
Flag, Boys! by Francis Scott Key. 
Fdr the Republicans in the crowd, 
these three books are suggested: 
Everything I Have Is Yours by 
Bernard Goldflne. I Was a Big 
Man Yesterday by Sherman Ad- 
ams, and I'll Cry Tomorrow by 
Dwight David Eisenhower. 

As for the reader with rural in- 
clinations, they suggest the Bad 
Seed edited by the Burpee Com- 
pany, while a necessity for all fu- 
ture homemakers is A House Is 
Not a Home published by. Better 
Humes and Gardens. 


(Continued from page t ) 
and this is. "Will this year really 
bring something new?" Will it in 
fact be anything more than the 
same get-a-good-grade-and-gat-out 
idea which seems to rule a major 
portion of the College at present. 

I realize that there are many 
criticisms concerning the various 
aspects of Bowdoin. some of which 
are perhaps not quite Justified, but 
the criticisms that are Justified 
seem just to hang in the air and 
are after a time forgotten about, 
and people go on in the same way 
as before, minding their own busi- 
ness, letting other people also 
mind their's. Now this is not quite 
as it should be. unless I have mis- 
, interpreted the general picture. 

Being therefore that I might 
very likely have developed wrong 
impressions about the college in 
the short time I have been hare. I 
will not criticize Bowdoin, but will 
rather give some impressions and 
views which I as a freshman (Oh 
thou poor unfortunate) and as a 
foreign student have formed about 
the college during my two semes- 
ters here. 

One of the main things that I 
have observed is the lack of the 
so-called "school »oirit." by this I 
do not mean tl«e rUi-rah football 
kind of spirit, but rather that 
there seems to be a lack of a gen- 
eral spirit among the students 
themselves; there seems to be 
an idea of "who cares?" floating 
about. There is little promotion of 
interest in the various fields of 
study, "no articulation" as some- 
one has commented; people don't 
talk about what they are inter- 
ested in. but rather go their own 
silent ways in a constant self- 
struggle to get that A. (or some 
don't even struggle at all). The 
struggle to get the A is of course 
not wrong, as long as it does not 
stop with this. 

This idea of the struggle for 
the A comes perhaps from the 
strong emphasis on grades, which 
might in a way be a bad thing. As 
Mr. Solmitz pointed out in a re- 
cent Saturday-morning chapel, is 
that' there seems to be a certain 
classification of students as a D 
student (he is no good); as a B 
student (he is pretty good), and 
as an A student (he is really the 
greatest); some people, however, 
don't even care at all about any- 
thing but themselves: Little 
thought seems therefore to be giv- 
en the fact of development of the 
student's character and intellect 
which is in a way separate from 
knowledge as portrayed by the 
"all Important" grade. The talk 
on the importance of the grade 
above the importance of a stu- 
dent's self-development Is per- 
haps neither here nor there. 

Remember! Your Maine motor 
vehicle operator's license most be 
renewed before your birthday. 

My major concern, however, is 
in relation to the incoming fresh- 
men of next vear. The freshmen 
of a college bring with them fresh 
potentials from the "outside," they 
are expectant, they are full of pep, 
and eager to get into the college 
life and tackle their new prob- 
lems, their new life. With the wave 
of freshmen there seems also to 
be a rejuvenation of the spirit of 
the upper-classmen as well. It 
seems that these new students 
have really started something. But 
now comes the cruel shock, and 
that is the suppression of the 
freshmen. First of all the spirit 
and the enthusiasm of the upper- 
classmen dies off. This loss of spirit 
then creeps over the freshmen and 
their "eager little mind" aren't 
so eager any more; their ideas are 
pushed down and soon lost, and 
they too start their monotonous 
periodic college life — which is 
nothing more than going to classes, 
doing homework (at least once in 
a while) and then forgetting about 
it all. Is all this going to happen 
again next year? Is it going to 
happen every year. 

Perhaps I am overly pessimis- 
tic about the whole thing, but still, 
might, there not be something In 
it? Is there In fact some truth -in 
that Bowdoin is becoming that 
kind of college which offers cer- 
tain courses of study to which you 
go and take notes and listen to 
lectures, get your C or better (or 
worse), and forget' about the 
whole thing until the next year? 
Is this Bowdoin college, or is Bow- 
doin different — a real college? 
Are there any moving forces work- 
ing within the college atmosphere ? 

One of the great things, how- 
ever, is the student's ability to 
criticize: his ability and oppor- 
tunity to change, where there 
seems to be something lacking. 
And if we look, perhaps we can 
find and do something about that 
which Is Jn fact lacking. 

This view is not an impersonal 
one, because I felt that J also 
have now become part of that 
which have something lacking, and 
this, as is said is a "bad thing." 

Yours truly,

Fraternities Approve Council Reorganization Effective Immediately

Council Change 
Passes Start 
Of Transition 

The main order of business at 
last Monday's Student Council 
meeting was The passing of meas- 
ures to provide for smooth transi- 
tion from the present system to 
the new system under the amend- 
ed constitution. 

A plea was entered by the staff 
of the Bugle for the Council's 
approval of an Increase in Blank- 
et Tax funds for the Bugle. The 
$1.50 raise (from $7.50 to $9.00) 
per student is necessary, they said, 
because an important source of 
Bugle income has been cut out 
for next year. The Bugle received 
a letter this fall from College 
Vice-President Norton informing 
them that the policy which has 
been followed for the past several 
years of soliciting the parents of 
students for sponsorship of the 
Bugle would no longer be per- 
mitted by the College. This loss 
In revenue would amount to $1300, 
they said, which, coupled with ris- 
ing printing costs, will make it 
■> necessary to either charge more 
for the Bugle or, to cut down its 
cost. After a period of discussion 
as to the Bugle really needed to be 
so expensive, a motion was passed 
to have the matter submitted to 
next year's Council. 

Other business included the 
electing of a campus Orientation 
Committee chairman for next 
year. The Council elected Peter 
Smith. A suggestion from the Dean 
was presented that, since pres- 
sure had been put on the State 
Police in the Brunswick area to 
be especially alert during the Ivy 
period, everyone exercise special 
prudence with regard to mixing 
alcohol and gasoline this week. 

In a special revote held by the 
Kappa Sigma house last week, the ^-w » j . . r^ 

necessary majority of nine houses I in /V/7I/A#/l/C / I 
to pass the Student Council revi- v -" 
sion amendment was gained. The 
original voting showed four houses 
against the proposal: ATO, ARU, 
Sigma Nu, and TD. With this de- 
cision, the shift from the old sys- 
tem to the new was set In motion. 
The first step in the transition was 
taken by the Student Council at 
last Monday's meeting. The Coun

Talks On Perry 


By Hal Heggenhougen '82 

With a "packed house," Com- 
mander William R. Anderson of 
the TISS Nautilus gave the last 
of three lectures in honor of Adm. 
Peary's discoverv of the North 
Pole on April 6, 1909. Mr. Ander- 
son covered, in this final lecture, 
ell entertained and passed five most appropriately the third me 

motions aimed at providing direc- 
tion for the oerlod between now 
and next fall when the new sys- 
tem will become regular. It was 
first decided that the nouses would 
be required to have both members 
present at the May 18 Council 
meeting. At this meeting a tem- 
porary president will be chosen 
from among the members of this 
year's council who will return .next 
year. A regular president will be 
elected in the usual manner at 
the first meeting in November. 

Other measures passed provided 
carry-over membership regulations 
for the Blanket Tax Committee, 
the Lecture Committee, and the 
Orientation Committee. In each 
case the present members will 
serve out the remainder of their 
terms and next year's council will 
then fill the vacancies in the man- 
ner prescribed by the amended 

dia in which the Pole is to be 
reached — and sea — the only 
difference being that he did not 
really cover the sea as such, but 
rather the travel under the sea, 
treating it as a three dimensional 
substance for travel — "Submar- 
ine Polar Exploration." 

Anderson started off with a 
rather vivid comparison of the 
way, Peary reached the Pole, and 
the way he reached it a little less 
than fifty years later: "His path 
was oven and around incredibly 
rugged hummocks and ridges and 
around or across remarkably 
treacherous ledges of thin ice. 
Ours wai a medium of incompar- 
able consistency and smoothness. 
His to endure were weeks of dark- 
ness or semi-darkness. Ours was 
a world of atomic-created light, 
available always at the flip of a

"Great Peary," this was one of 
the names the Eskimoes had for 
Adm. Peary.. Who by learning and 
living with these people, by be- 
ing Peary — the man, created an 
undying friendship with them and 
through this combined effort was 
able to be the first to reach the 
North Pole. Peary "would not ask 
the Eskimoes to do something 
that he would not do himself; he 
was their friend and thev his," and 
through this friendship came many 
achievements which brought Peary 
closer to the Pole.

William Shakespeare's HENRY 
IV, PART I. as produced by the 
Bowdoin Masque and Gown, will 
be seen tonight in Pickard Theater 
at 8:00 p.m. The play deals with 
Shakespeare's favorite historical 
character, Henry V, in his progres- 
sion from the goqdnatured, irres- 
ponsible playboy Prince Hal to the 
esteemed warrior and heir to the 
English Crown. An attempted re- 
bellion of the Percy family against 
Henry IV led by Henry Percy 
(Hotspur), is foiled at the battle 
of Shrewsbury as the King and 
Prince Hal lead their forces a- 
gainst those of Hotspur, Douglas 
of Scotland, and Edmund Morti- 
mer — with whom the rebels hope 
to replace Henry. This thoroughly 
dramatic plot is supplemented by 
one of the most lovable bands of 
rascals ever to appear on the stage, 
led by the overpowering figure of 
Sir John Falstaff. The play itself 
is a rollicking, swashbuckling 
blend of tragedy and roaring farce, 

with the characters of Hal, Fal- one of which is an unmistakeable goes to Shakespeare 
staff, and Hotspur taking the lead boyish playfullness. Aside from sometimes gains 
in importance. Mr. Swierzynski's disconcerting readings is lost 1

Mr. Snow was chosen to be the

is he a poet and expert on poetry, 
but he also, while here at Bow- 
doin, served the Quill in the capac- 
ity of Business Manager and

honor to be the first "Longfellow

this honor at the time was only 
accompanied by forty dollars a 

Through his life, Mr. Snow's 
first love was the writing and 
teaching of poetry. His poems have 
been compared with those of many 
poets. He mentioned that his first 
book of poems actually appears to 
be more like Kipling than Kipling 
himself. He mentioned thrit the 
similarity between his poems and 
those of Frost have often been 
pointed out. but Mr. Snow was 
quick to point out that Frost had 
a quality of reticence which he, 
partly due to his Irish ancestry.

Resident of Maine 

Mr. Snow has been a resident 
of Maine and this is quite evident 
from his poems. As he read some 
of his poems about the Maine sea- 
coast and its residents, it was 
evident he had a familiarity with 

He was able to catch the local 
color of places other than New 
England however. One of the most 
beautiful ooems he read was 
named "Christmas In Alaska." 
Mr. Snow wrote this poem while 
in a government post 
among a tribe living within the 
Arctic Circle. The poem catches 
the subtle Christmas spirit and yet 
does not lose ardor of the sur- 
rounding natural beauty. 

Poetry For The People

the type of poetry he labeled 
modern poetry," gave us an in-

for them to understand and en

poets of the modern school, while 
good, have the fault of not tell- 
ing the people about things they 
can understand. He compared 
these writers to abstract painters 
.whose paintings need careful 
scrutinizing before their theme is 
found. Mr. Snr.w is married to the 
idea that things are happening 
today which should be put in 
poetry, but he thinks the modern 
schools are failing in their task 
as "tribe tellers." 

Mr. Snow has experimented 
with almost' all types of poetry 
Jrom narrative verse to the son- 
net and from the examples he 
read, seems to have accomplished 
much in several fields of poetry. 
The manner in which he delivered 
his poems held the audiences atten-

not a lecture to be missed. Mr.

A Step To Responsibility 

Passage of the Student Council reorganization plan is a 
significant step towards transforming the present council with 
nil its weakness to a council of strength and importance. We 
applaud those with sufficient foresight to recognize how much 
such a reorganization could mean to responsible, effective stu- 
dent government at Bowdoin. . 

Mere passage, however, is not enough. The job has only 
begun, and we should remember that successful student gov- 
ernment cannot be maintained unless the student body itself 
wishes ro maintain it. It is lo be hoped that the innovations in 
the council structure will encourage greater interest in student 
government and student responsibility, and will help in pro- 
moting the election of the most qualified persons to the council. 

The success of the reorganization plan rests almost solely 
with the quality of the elected representatives from the various 
houses. If a genuine effort is made to elect those most able to 
serve, then we will have made the first step towards a useful, 
responsible council. 

For A Better Bowdoin 

From the smoke-filled rooms of the Orient eome some 
strange ideas as the campus is no doubt aware. Well the other 
night was no exception, and, in fact, the air was peculiarly thick 
with inspiration and overflowing talent. 

The discussion all revolved around the fact that the paper is 
too often criticized for being destructive and not offering posi- 
tive suggestions for the welfare of the College. The Orient, 
being as it is a model of journalistic sobriety, has decided to 
print its constructive suggestions "To Build a Better Bowdoin." 

Once we had eliminated the possibility of constructing a 
women's college on the banks of the Androscoggin in Topsham, 
we were hard pressed to come up with anything constructive 
which the College might take Tiote of, but fertile brains were at 
work, and the following is the two- fold Orient Plan for Bowdoin: 

1 . In the wintertime, some of our frailer students have 
great difficulty in wading through the snow drifts which cover 
the campus. In the spring season, the only green grass on the 
whole campus grows directly above the pipes which run from 
the heating plant (the true "heart of the college"). There- 
fore, we suggest a program to a) rid the campus of those ugly 
snow drifts and b) to produce lush green grass on campus year 
'round. Namely, line the entire campus with heating pipes. 

2. Instead of increasing the Student Council to a mere 
twenty-six men (obviously an insufficient number to represent 
800), why not do away with the Student Council altogether? 
Institute direct democracy. Let the entire student body act as 
a council. Under the new plan each Monday afternoon the en- 
tire student body would meet in Pickard Theater to enact legis- 
lation and to plot generally against the Administration. Every 
student would be a member of some committee, and, where 
necessary, a committee to form new committees would be in

Ivy is in the air. In particular 
ifis hanging in the air in the form 
of a spiderweb of wires all over 
the campus. As regularly as an 
issue of The Watchtower these in* 
candescent reminders of our Puri- 
tan heritage make their appear- 
ance. Like weeds they seem to 
grow best in an inhospitable at- 
mosphere. Although al) their 
brethren have been neatly buried 
under the ground at great expense 
to "preserve the unspoiled beauty 
of the campus" these nasty little 
black wires somehow manage to 
spring up over night and thrive. 
At first they seem harmless en- 
ough, but this is just their way 
of lulling the unwary student into 
a sense of false security. Before 
you can say Thomas Alva Edison 
the buds appear. These all bear 
somewhat similar markines with 
such cryptic signs at 25W, and 
Mazda. Roughly translated these 
hieroglyphics mean, "ah, ah, ah, 
ahhhhhhh!" The buds seem to ri- 
pen without changing shape. In- 
side however they are forming and 
shaping, waiting for the moment 
of bloom. So far this season they 
have remained in their silent met- 
amorphic state. However I have 
just thumbed through my copy of 
The Old Student's Almanac and 
I can now fairly accurately pre- 
dict that they will burst into 
bloom the night of May fifteenth. 
It should be noted that this is a 
strictly night blossoming vine. 
Once this point in the vine's life 
cycle has been reached all is lost. 
The brilliant blossoms will con- 
tinue to shed their rays of dis- 
couragement throUKh I he rest of 
Ivy. After the weekend they will 
go into a short period of dor- 
mancy only to bloom again with 
equal vigor come graduation. 
There is no known defense against 
this insidious competition with 
the stars. Some students have been 
brash enough to attempt to eradi- 
cate this blight on the emotions. 
Unfortunately they have not reck- 
oned with the subtle power pos- 
sessed by the vine. With some* mys- 
terious defense mechanism inher- 
ent in their r make up they have 
caused their attackers to disap- 
pear, never to be seen on the cam- 
pus again. This sometimes takes 
the form of a transmigration as 
the victim is occasionally seen 
again in other areas of the world. 
They can usually be picked out by 
the gaunt, pale uneducated look 
on their faces. Usually their piti- 
ful reward for this one rash ac- 
tion is to be forced to slave their 
hearts out in order to barely make 
ends meet; perhaps in some sweat 
shop of a steel mill for a mere 
$3.03 an hour, plus overtime, plus 
benefits v "Oh why did A ever cast 
that stone?" An occasional squir- 
rel has also suddenly discovered 
the folly of using some of this 
#12 vine, in which the juices were 
flowing, for nesting material. I 
imagine they thought better of 
it all the way down. Apparently 
these plants can't stand the full 
heat of summer (and most of the 
summer institute people are al- 
ready married) as they soon dis- 
appear after the solstice. Will 
they be back? You can bet your 
bottom brownie point thev mill.

of Massachusetts Hall last week. 

"But does my education have 
to be THAT liberal?" 

"Well we do have the spread

"But I have never been much

around the Library. Then no-body 
or thing will be able to get in or

carefully marked "Twentieth Cen- 
tury" or any one digging up the 
old ruin would think himself .at

rate the pool is to be out of com- 
mission for a month. It is a good 
ihing they closed it now or per- 
haps some of thf Brunswick resi- 
dents wouldn't nave been able to 
use it this summer. As we all 
know the Bowdoin college student 
is not completely well rounded 
unless he can either swim the pool 
twice or drown gracefully. As 
walking the pool is not considered 
a completion of the test the An- 
droscoggin is being considered as 
a substitute. The only problem is 
to find monitors to check the stu- 
dents as they jump the falls on 
their way up the river to, . 
graduate? I for one will want to 
watch this from tha masthead. 

But first a few Ivy words of wis- 
dom from Hamlet the hamster: 
A fraternity pin mailed to oneself 
is worth two anywhere else. 


"Shortsighted, sloppy and maud- 
lin price-and-cost theories," ad- 
vanced as cures tor college eco- 
nomic ills, may lead to destruc- 
tion of "the established American 
concept of public higher educa- 
tion," Pres. Jean Paul Mather of 
the University of Massachusetts 
warned here recently in his annual 

His statement was part of a vig- 
orous attack on recent proposals 
that "public and private tuition 
rates be raised radically and then 
covered by extensive loan pro- 
grams. " President Mather's ans- 
wer to such proposals came In the 
course of a 20-page analysis of 
the University's "progress, poli- 
cies, problems, and plans." 

Continuing his attack on those 
asking for expanded student-loan 
"programs. President Mather said 
that such proposals would Impose 
on families newly formed after 
graduation, a burden of academic 
debt "that would wreck the very 
home foundations of our society " 

Calling these proposals the "un- 
supported excuse-making com- 
ments of the easy-way-out people," 
he saw tax-supported education in 
low-tuition oub)tc institutions as 
a better way out. even if this 
meant enrolling the great major- 
ity of students in state universi- 
ties. President Mather said that 
he saw "nothing catastrophic or 
harmful about the situation if, by 
1975, 85 per cent (instead of the 

present 58 per cent) of college and 
university students are in state- 
supported institutions." 

President Mather said that in 
the midst of the controversy over 
pricing -and sharing of higher edu- 
cational .effort in the country, he 
would use his energies "to crusade 
for less apathy and more interest 
in education on the part of the 
public we serve." 

But the public, he said, has a 
great responsibility. Noting that 
at present cnlv two dollars out of 
every hundred of oer capita per- 
sonal income are spent for private 
and public higher education in this 
country, he pointed out that one 
additional dollar expended for edu- 
catipn would provide the revenue 
necessary to meet planned requests 
by all educators by about 1970.

Ivy Play Review 

(Conti nue d from page I) 

these moments the stage comes 
alive, the pace quickens and the 
theatre is once again in place as 

an entertainment art. Unfortunate- 
ly, these moments are too few. 

The role of Prince Hal is, in a 
sense, the most difficult of the 
three leading characters. It in- 
volves a rather drastic transition 
from a boy to a man — either 
stage equally hard to portray indi- 
vidually. Neville Powers is' to be 
commended for his attempt at this 
job. Mr. Powers has an agile body 
and a gift of imagination rarely 
found in an actor evidently just 
beginning on the stage and it is 
a shame that his portrayal, as in 
the two aforementioned, lacks be- 
lievability. He is not completely 
polished — as even Hal's boyish- 
ness must be — but shows insight 
into the character in various subtle 
reactions and actions that add life 
to a portrayal oftentimes lacking 
in confidence. 

Of the lesser characters, several 
stand out as bright snots. The re- 
spective portrayals of Marcus Mer- 
riman, Mark Youmans and Jim 
Bryan add life and sorely-needed 
zest and humor to the normally 
irresistable tavern scenes. Mr. 
Merriman shows signs of develop- 
ing into a sensitive . actor — his 
exuberance and imagination are 
qualities of which BoWdoin thea- 
trical productions should make use. 
Mimi Lyons, in the small part of 
Lady Percy, adds a mature per- 
formance, as does Jesse Leather- 
wood as Worcester. Nicholas Mon- 
sour, as Henry IV, starts rather 
slowly, but manages to turn in a 
good job. Harald Heggenhougen, as 
Lancaster, add vitality to the play 
in the fencing scenes. Especially 
outstanding i s Kate Daggett as 
Mistress Quickley. Hers is one of 
the few performances of the play 
that comes close to a naturalness 
of characterization. 

The play Itself i s burdened by 
a slow pace. The movements of 
the characters are" often unima- 
ginative and stereotyped and too 
often actors are just reading lines 
instead of portraying characters. 
The set is neutral. It is a valid 
question as to whether such a 
bulky neutral is sorely needed. 
Since it is not strictly Elizabeth- 
an, there should be no great sin in 
replacing it with something sim- 
pler and less blankly imposing. It 
is also unfortunate that, with the 
tremendous facilities of the Pick- 
ard Theater, something more im- 
aginative could not be done with 
the lighting. However, it is ade- 
quate and technically excellent. 

All in all, the performance is 
one to be seen, for the moments of 
fun and occasional sensitive play- 
ing make up fpr many faults It 
cannot be avoided, however, that 
as an artistic achievement the play 
fails to measure up in many' res- 
pects. The believability, natural- 
ness, minute characterization, rap- 
port, pacing, technique and vitali- 
ty that make for a truly artistic 
performance are not developed to 
their full potential. It is this po- 
tential that makes the play worth 
seeing; the occasional flashes of 
imagination and vitality that run 
through the cast are wonderful in 
their genuineness. What is needed 
is a guiding hand to bring these 
flashes together into a full act, a 
full play, a full season. 

By Charlie Packard 

I stepped into the First Nation- 
al Bank of Bowdoin the other day 
to pay my overdue fines. While I 
was there, I ran into my old friend 
Field Marshall Sir Rolphe Fusse- 
Budgitt, internationally known 
authority on Library Fortification. 
Sir Rolphe told me that he had 
just completed a study of the li- 
brary facilities at a Prominent 
Small New England College. He 
wouldn't reveal the name of the 
institution, but he was kind en- 
ough to let me in on a little of 
the information he had gathered 
there. I've since edited his state- 
ments for publication, and I call

The Saga Of The Sorry Stacks 
It's logic that the stacking lacks. 
A rowsing browsing of the stacks 
will show that systematic stacking 
is (forgive the scho) lacking. 

God's Little Acre (Erskine C.) 
is stacked beneath THEOLOGY. 
The Bible, on the other hand, 
has fallen down four levels and 
(because the Freshmen study it) 
is now found under ENGLISH 

And Moby Dick's another book 
that's found within a foreign nook: 
because its setting is the sea, 

Further proof of such a mess 
is Sawynr, Tom (by Clemens, S.). 
When Tom white-washed the 

wooden fence, 
I'll bet he didn't know that hence 
his story would adorn a shelf 
that bears the sign: DO-IT-

of a pumpkin) finds detention

p other words, the point to make 
is that someone should undertake 
to order chaos in the stacks — 
It's logic that the stacking lacks.

ments to make in regard to the 
card catalogues he investigat

ers: their fight with thp ice, the 
combined efforts of dogs, explor- 
ers and Eskimoes. Her story por- 
trayed people and brought to life 
the Arctic as she knew it and 
experienced it, and as the various 
explorers must have known it. 
' One of the first attempts to 
reach the Pole was made by Sir 
John Franklin, an attempt which 
ended most disasterously by the 
death of the whole expedition, 153 
men, as they were horridly starved 
and frozen away in their death- 
march along the ice — their prison. 
Later in 1871, the ship the "Po- 
laris" set out — without success. 
With this expedition were con- 
nected many mysterious details 
which were never solved; one be- 
ing the sudden death of the Cap- 
tain. Later there were attempts 
in 1879 and in 1881. One expedi- 
tion. Nansen's, tried even to drift 
with the ice to the Pole, he also 
failed to reach the goal. 
Old Instruments, New Methods 
Peary's aohievement was par- 
ticularly successful by the fact 
that he used the same instruments, 
the same materials which had been 
used in the Arctic for some 400 
years; and only difference with 
Peary's expedition and the others 

was that he used new methods. 
For one thing he got very close to 
the Eskimoes. as mentioned above. 
This was a very important fac- 
tor, since his explorations were 
to be in this media of the Arctic. 
He knew that he could learn a 
great deal from the people who 
had lived and had their home for 
centuries in this naturally un- 
friendly world of ice and cold. He 
wore his clothes Eskimo-style, 
with the fur in and the skin out 
for better protection against the 
wind and the cold. Wearing his 
clothes this way gave place for 
air to keep the body warm and 
free of sweating moisture at all 
times. Another thing that made 
Peary's trip successful was his 
idea of using many teams on his 
way to the Pole, almost as a re- 
lay team. One team would go In 
front, breaking the way, then af- 
ter a while this leading team 
would stop and turn back and an- 
other team would take over the 
lead and so on until one team was 
left, in this case, Peary and his 
hardiest and ablest men — his 
Negro dog-team driver and three 
Eskimoes. By this method Peary 
was spared the effort of breaking 
his way through the ice from the 
beginning and could use all his 
energy on the final stretch to his 
goal, to the fulfillment of his life 
— the reaching of the North Pole.

POLAR Polar Bear Batters Wallop Bates In State Series

KTi/i Ouer Bobcats; Varsity 
Nine Loses To Maine, Colby 

By Joel Sherman 

Sailors Take 
Fifth Spot In 
New Englands 

Fortunately, the White team* are starting to shape up for 
the tail end of the State Series. The varsity golfers already 
have three series wins to their credit and could take the Maine 
crown this year. With only two seniors leaving the squad, 
future hopes for the linkmen are high. 

Our sailors seem set to take the title this Sunday after- 
noon- With Carv'en and Olsson at the helm, there should be 
clear sailing for the boys. Since the meet is one of the few at 
home this year and is being held on the Sunday afternoon of a 
party weekend, we hope there will be a good crowd on hand 
to cheer the only team on campus with a high ( 5 ) New England 

rating. These fellows get very little Bowdoin spectator follow- y e «r*s National Champions, suf- 
, l/l *"ri ■ • *jl fored two disastrous last races to

cop the title.

The Polar Bear nine finally, showed its true nature last 
Saturday by walloping Bates by a score of I 3-6. The White 

Plagued by fouls all season, the 
sailing team couldn't break the 
habit in the New England Cham- 
pionships at Coach Guard, May 
ninth and tenth. They incurred 
three fouls in eighteen races. This 
set them back from a possible sec- 
ond to fifth out of nine teams. 

Otherwise, the results of the 
meet were a big surprize. Har- 
vard, figured by most to take a 
low place, sailed impeccably to win 
by a substantial margin. MIT, last 

The results were: 1) Harvard, 
2) B.U., 3) MIT. 4) Coast Guard, 
5) Bowdoin, 6) Yale, 7) Brown,

Toronto last Sunday. 

Sailing in "A" and 'B" divisions 
respectively were skippers Lance 
Lee and (Bill Lemberg with Art 
Van de Water and Bob Smith 

The competition developed to 
be largely that of the University 
of Toronto, both divisions vying 
for top positions consistently. The 
result of the. formal meet was a 
tie resulting from a breakdown 


A big eighth inning lowered the 
boom on Bates at Garcelon Field 
Saturday as Bowdoin posted a 13- 
6 State Series victory. The Polar 
Bears sent 13 men to the plate in 
that inning and scored eight runs. 

Wildness put Gerry Sutherland 
in trouble in that frame, after 
he had replaced Dick Wilson. Ger- 
ry Feld started for the Bobcats 
while John Bennett was the final 
Bates mounds man. 

Bates outhit the Polar Bears 12- 
9. One Bobcat hit was a two run 
homer by Franc Vana in the third 

Ron Woods went "the distance 
for the Polar Bears, who in down- 
ing Bates were getting their first 
State Series victory. Woods regis- 
tered 13 strikeouts tn the tilt and 
issued only four free passes as 
compared with nine by the four 
Bates moundsmen.

Accurate Dick Colwell's three- 
hit, no walk pitching combined 
with Dean Deshon's run-produc- 
ing single and Blink Davis' homer 
to blank Bowdoin 2-0 in State 
Series action last Wednesday. It 
was Maine's first series win in 
three starts and Bowdoin's opener. 

Control ace Colwell has issued 
Just one base on balls in 35 inn- 
ings this season posting a 3-1 rec- 
ord. The White's veteran Ron 
Woods gave him a battle. Only one 
of Woods' seven walks was dam- 
aging. He yielded six hits to the 

Maine scored in the fourth inn- 
ing via a walk to Ken Perrone, 
Dave Mosher's single, Fred Hall's 
error at first to load the bases and 
Deshon's single. 

Lefthanded batter Davis blasted 
his home run to leftcenter in the 
eighth. It roiled to the woods and 
the Black Bear right-fielder had 
no trouble making the circuit. 

Colwell was in complete com- 
mand. Bowdoin has only five base- 
runners, two on errors. Only in 
the sixth did the Polar Bears get 
two men on, and then with two 
out on singles by Dick Morse and 
Macey Rosenthal. 

Both infields played well. 
Maine's overall record is now .6-5. 
Bowdoin dipped to 2-8.

the usually reliable Macey Roaen- 
thal, to down the Polar Bears 4- r 
in a State Series ball game Thurs- 
day. The Mules now lead 3-0. 
. Bowdoin collected four hits of 
Johnny Roberts, but the lone Polar 
Bear run counted in the first Inn- 
ing, on an infield error sandwich- 
ed between two walks and Tony 
Berlandi's sacrifice fly to left. 

The Polar Bears left nine base 
runners stranded as Roberts tight- 
ened with men on base, forcing 
Bowdoin batsmen to swing at bad 
pitches. He racked up seven strike- 

Bowdoin's Bob Swenson yielded 
only two earned runs. One camp 
in the seventh on singles by Ed 
Burke and George Roden follow- 
ed by Don Burgess's fly to center. 

The other came in the eighth 
when Pete Cavari walked, romped 
to third on Tony Zash's single to 
center, and came home on a double 
steal try, Zash being called out on 
Berlandi's peg to second. 

Colby's first two runs were un- 
earned. In the third, George Rodun 
reached on Rosenthal's bobble Of 
a routine roller to short, moved 
along on a walk to Don Burgess, 
and Cavari's flyout to right, and 
came home when Rosenthal, strid- 
ing to cut off a double theft try, 
hit pitcher Bob Swenson in the 
side with his peg to the plate. 

In the sixth two Rosenthal er- 
rors, a steal and Zash's sacrifloe 
fly scored Cavari with another un- 
earned run. 

Swenson pitched well, walking 
two and fanning three. Only Rid- 
den was able to get to him fox 
extra bases, a triple which he un- 
successfully tried to stretch into 
a home run. 

Bowdoin, as usual, had numerous 
scoring, opportunities. It had the 
bases loaded with none out in the 
first, but scored only one run. Run- 
ners were left stranded in the sec- 
ond and the third. Two each tn 
the sixth and seventh and one kh 
the ninth. Only one of Colby's 
three errors affected the scoring. 

Rosenthal turned in a pair Of 
sparkling plays, sprinting to left 
center to haul down a fly by Zash 
that would have scored a run, and 
relaying a thcow from deep cen- 
ter to catch Roden at the plate ift 
the ninth. 

BUI Green and Dick Leeman 
played well defensively for Bovf- 
doin, while Zash and Roden spark- 
led for the Mules.

By 11-6 Score 

Last Wednesday, April 29, the 
Bowdoin Freshman baseball teasn 
lost their first Maine series garfie 
by falling to the University pf 
Maine by the score of 11-6. Bow- 
doin jumped to a 5-0 lead going 
Into the bottom of the third wtth 
a parlay of back-to-back hitting by 
Morse, Field, and Stowell. Then In 
the last half of the third, the roor 
fell in for the Frosh. Ed Callahan, 
the Polar pitcher, gave up two 
walks which set the stage for tne 
Maine rally. The Maine freshmen 
put nine hits together for nine 
runs with the aid of several Bow- 
doin errors. Marble put out the 
fire in the nine run outburst after 
Maine sent 15 men to the plate. In 
the top half of tbe inning, Dex 
Morse, the second-sacker for Bo|v- 
doln, blasted a three-run homer 
Into left center which accounted 
for most of the Bowdoin scoring. 

Bowdoin added another run in 
the sixth on two hits and a wa|k.

It is Saturday afternoon, a few 
dates have already arrived but 
most of them will ride up from 
the train station in buses. The 
buses, of course, take the place of 
student cars and also allow the 
students to study instead of meet- 
ing their dates at the station. 
Those studentsjjwith blind dates

crew of the freshman common 
makes feverish preparation for the 
mass picnic on Pickard field. Great 
boxes of peanut butter and jelly 
sandwiches are prepared. Great 
tubs of ice cold lemonade. For 
the first time this year there are 
less than three hundred students 
in the library on a Saturday af-

The Committee for the Preser- 
vation of Social Fraternities. Bow- 
doin's latest committee in a never 
ending procession of such groups, 
will hold Its first meeting in the 
drainagf^system being construct- 
ed next to the arena and gymna- 
sium tomorrow morning. So says 
the Committee's duly - elected 
chairman Conserv Alumnus "98. 

"Doubtless, remarked Mr. Alum- 
nus, "the location of our meeting 
place might be considered some- 
what unusual, but we selected it 
for purely philosophical reasons, 
as must be perfectly obvious to 
just anyone." Not only do we feel 
that we will manage to achieve a 
Nirvanna-type state of "insight" 
(that rare and wonderful creature 
oft' seen fluttering about the Un- 
ion), but we And the below ground 
location handy to the central 
drainage system which passes be- 
neath the president's house on 
Federal Street. From here all 
types of insight may be gained." 

One more skeptical member of 
the committee was heard to re- 
mark something to the effect that 
he "wished these philosophers 
would take advantage of the drain 
system to do something which re- 
quired a lot less insight." 

Student Council president Al- 
fred E. Dynamo '59 commented as 
follows on the new group (which 
reportedly is getting big outside 
money from a special national 
fraternity Philosophical slush 

"It's 'illegal. This organization 
Isn't duly controlled by the stu- 
dent council." 

The Dean said: "Well. I 
wouldn't want to say yes . . . 
(pause) . . . and I wouldn't want 
to say no." 

The President said: nothing. He 
is reported, to be looking up all 
the words in the dictionary for 
accurate meanings, and is pres- 
ently piecing together a statement. 

The Bursar's Office: "How much 
is it going to cost?" (In unison). 

Further investigation by this 
reporter determined that the mem- 
bership of the group is roughly 
the same as that of all the other 
campus groups. In fact the same 
six people who keep the other 63 
campus organizations in the land 
of the living are also the complete

the Heating Plant Committee 
Ass'n (hereafter referred to as

the day due to certain manifesta- 
tions of unfriendliness among the 
friends ( hereafter referred to as 
F's). Before the meeting met this 
untimely deverse, Ave Quakers, 
and one heck-of-a-nice-guy who 
said his name was Dale Carnegie 
were refused admittance due to 
the prevailing popular opinion at 
the meeting that these latter gen-

number of suggestions were mode 
which the FBSCCA would now 
publish for the benefit of their 
sister campus organization toward 
which it feels such insestuous ben- 

I. Revival of the W. B. White- 
side Wild West History Course. 

What student could fail to be in- 
spired by the, sight of T»rofessor 
W. B. (Wild Bill) Whiteside 
stomping into the classroom on a 
golden stallion wearing a Smiley 
Burnett autograph model hat 
(with optional kerchief detached) 
which members of the course can 
purchase for the nominal price of 
seven campus dog hides. With six- 
guns- riding low on his hips he 
greets the class with a friendly 
"Howdy. Pards," an interesting 
ratification of the course could 
be "The Whiteside Straight- 
Shooter Intellectual Honesty 
Code," whereby members of the 
course shall vow to round up their 
term papers and get them to the 
railhead on time. Special lectures 
on branding, shipping and proces- 
sing of cattle (not necessarily re- 
lating to the annual Ivy guest for 
livestock) could be given with 
the award of "High-Ranking Hom- 
bre" bestowed on the most am- 
bituously Western scholar. 

II. A course to be offered by H. 
R. Brown on the Literature of the 
Beat Generation which would no 
doubt be shortly and fondly en- 
titled "Beat-Lit" would hold eve- 
ning senunars in the cellar of 
Jarvis Restaurant, with coffee and 
crullers to be contributed by the 
Friends of the Bowdoin Wives 
COmm. Ass'n. (Inc.) If the de- 
mand warrants the 'expense, bongo 
drums will be made available. 
People taking this course and are 
on a schedule which requires more 
than one "fix" per hour are urged 
to fix a fix schedule which would 
enable them to attend the half- 
hour senunars offered on Sunday 
morning and Wednesday night, ex- 
cept on th« Sunday of Alan Guns- 
bergs birthday and St. Agnes Cue, 
which falls during even-numbered 
years on Wednesday. Prospective 
students should arrange an in- 
terview with Professor Brawn at 
his office, "The hungry e." 

III. Due to the overwhelmingly 
large number of students who are 
refugees from Dr. .Sabastennski's 
one-hour version of "Boot Camp," 
there has been a demand for a 
calisthenics class in which the 
art of doing nothing would be 
strenuously practiced. The Friends 
of the Governing Boards Commit- 
tee Ass'n has put forward the 
name of Professor Morrell whose 
wide experience in and decided 
flair for this new art form are 
making themselves felt through- 
out the campus.

switch. His navigation instruments 
were a pocket watch and a sex- 
tant; ours a maze of mechanical 
and electronic devices that con- 
stantly revealed with great ac- 
curacy our position ahd our prog- 
ress. His was a world of incred- 
ible hardness — temperatures 
down to forty and fifty below — 
hard driving winds — blinding 
snow. Ours was a world of atomic 
plenty and atomic comfort. 

It is easy to do something after 
someone has shown the way; after 
someone has gone ahead and has 
done the hard work, and so it was 
with Peary who "revolutionized 
mankind's geographical concepts 
and aims ... In this respect to- 
day's nuclear submarine service 
and indeed our entire Navy owe a 
special debt of gratitude to Ad- 
miral Peary, for it was he who 
first confirmed the basic dimen- 
sions of the great Arctic basin, 
who first confirmed that the water 
at the North Pole is thousands of 
feet deep, that the ice throughout 
the basin remains fairly uniform 
and predictable and not hundreds 
of feet deep as had been popular- 
ly assumed. These and other find- 
ings of Admiral Peary are a basic 
ingredient of today's submarine 

Riches of Ocean 

The Commander told of the un- 
limiting riches of the ocean, and 
how man might some day grow 
more and more dependent upon 
the "world of inner space." "There 
is a revolution going on today in 
the world of inner space, this rev- 
olution is taking place in the Arc- 
tic and every other ocean, not 
only through nuclear submarines 
but also through every other 
means by which man is moving 
into the ocean's depths. I firmly 
believe that within this medium 
is contained much of the means by 
which we cifn gain lasting world 
peace and the solution to man's 

Many very interesting factors 
in the development of the sub- 
marine up to the present stale of 
the atomic submarines as por- 
trayed by the Nautilus and the 
Skate were also discussed, as for 
example, the facts that "a nu- 
clear submarine cruises at speeds 
almost ten times that of the bat- 
tery-run submarine and can do 
this literally until the food runs 
out. And while doing so, there is 
no overriding need to expose so 
much as a periscope, for modern 
sonar is far Ix'tter than the human 
eye for telling what is going on 
in the sea. Sonar tells the depth 
to the ocean floor, warns of ob- 
jects that lie in the path of the 
submarine, determines the thick- 
ness of ice overhead, and reveals 
just about everything about an- 
other ship or submarine . . ." 

Technical Comfort 
Even though it is true that it 
took tremendous technical knowl- 
edge and progress in the construc- 
tion of such an instrument as the 
NauUlus, there was, as Command- 
er Anderson pointed out, a much 
more tremendous (nee of man as 
a hardy and courageous being in 
the age of Peary. In contrast to 
this struggle of man lighting with 
all his physical and mental ability 
we have the picture that Anderson 
gave us: "Television and peri- 
scopes gave u.s a fasei naming view 
of the ice passing overhead. As

"Friends" Will 
Disband When 
Quorum Found 

The coming of spring is a won- 
derful thing. Not only does it 
bring the very best in natural lore 
and beauty, but it carries with it 
certain unmistakable drawbacks, 
one of which is a distinct inability 
to get anything done — that is, 
anything of any importance. 
Studying — that abnormal Bow- 
doin phenomena — ceases, and all 
activity is confined to those pur- 
suits only the most essential. 
The mad scramble for an Ivy 
Date, is surpassed only by the 
scramble to get the necessary 
number of chapels onto the not 
so carefully guarded books of 
Massachusetts Hall. 

But all activity doesn't come to 
a grinding halt. Just the other 
day there came to our attention 
a mysterious organization named 
the Friends of the Bowdoin Li- 
brary, whose title insofar as we 
are able to determine, character- 
izes the nebulous nature of this 
shady group which, by all ac- 
counts, spends its time being 
"friendly" to the library in ways 

The organization apparently has 
large sums of money salted away 
in conservaUve New York (Bow- 
doin) banks drawing interest ag- 
ainst that unlikely day when the 
library will request a sum of mon- 
ey larger than tke one it request- 
ed the year before. , Barring any 
such radical step as that, the most 
that can happen is that the entire 
Friends of the Library organiza- 
tion with its numerous sub-com- 
mittees will go out of existence 
due to a peculiar provision of the 
Constitution which says that the 
process of amendment may be car- 
ried out by a two-thirds vote of 
one tenth of the duly befriended 
members. Some bright anti-library 
boy could really execute a coup 
by infiltrating the organization, 
and with one other man he could 
probably manage to disband the 
entire frantic group. 

ROTC Review 

Miss Stunning De Fete, daugh- 
ter of General De Fete, was pre- 
sented to the Corps of Cadets this 
afternoon at Pickard Field. Miss 
De Fete asked to be taken on a 
map reading exercise through the 
pines. In an unprecedented show 
of enthusiasm, the entire Corps 
stepped forward to volunteer to 
accompany Miss De Fete into the 
woods. This reporter heard the 
General whisper brokenly to Col. 
McCuller that "Such devotion to 
cause and country brings tears to 
my eyes." Miss De Fete and the 
map-reading party have not yet 


Mr. and Mrs. America and all 
the ships at sea. As we go to press, 
word had come by runner from 
Pickard field that Miss De Fete 
is in enemy hands and that enemy 
troops are pouring all over the 
field. Cadet Sargent Phidepides, 
sole survivor of the entire Battle 
group reports that the Corps has 
been overwhelmed. At 4:20, just 
prior to dismissal, as the hot and 
thirsty troops stood at attention, 
there suddenly came a low mur- 
mur of horror as hundreds of ene- 
my troops with red stars embroid- 
ered on their bermudas, surged 
out of the woods screaming 
"Screwdriver" and "Bowdoin Hel- 
lo." The enemy seemed to be 
armed with Khrushchev cocktails. 
These were actually bottles of Red 
Star Ale, explained the breathless 
Phidepides as he ran to the head. 

The Bowdoin Battle group be- 
came smashed almost immediate- 
ly. Invasion of the campus is ex- 
pected momentarily. Infiltration is 
to be expected. Be on the lookout 
for Caviar, Blintzes, impromptu 
Ballet and a roly poly little man 
who will probably drink vodka 
and wrestle with the Buildings and 
grounds crew under the pretense 
of showing them how to mow the 
lawns better. Be sure and see the

"Czar Peter VIII." 

the Arctic — in shirtsleeves, three 
hot meals a day, and a warm bunk. 
I'd sure hate to have to walk 
across that stuff the way Admiral 
Peary did.' " 

Commander Anderson paid trib- 
ute to Peary In these words: "I 
know of no quality in man that 
is quite so much to be admired 
as determination, and I know of 
no man who has shown quite so 
much of this quality as Bowdoin's 
most Illustrious alumnus, Admiral 
Robert E. Peary. The man who 
lived the motto "I will find a 
way or make one' found and made 
his way to the North Pole."

"The Artist in the Modem World" 

"A good work of art must stand 
not only for its own time, but for 
all time; it must stand along with 
historical scholarship as a docu- 
ment of the age out of which It 
grew .... It must have, univer- 
sality. And most of the art of so- 
cial criticism in our day has none 
of this." 

O. Raymond Babineau 

"Adam, Bve, and a 
Balance of Perspectives" 

"A college such as Bowdoin 
should continue to be a college of 
arts and sciences so thai each man 
can appreciate the variety of ways 
of knowing about the universe In 
which he lives and then allow him 
to And the balance of perspectives 
which he needs for a complete 
existence as a man."

for the unexpected entrance of

ing raised about education in Am- 
erica, there stands a naive group 
of educationists who are largely 
responsible for the disappearance 
of the Inquiring mind In our so- 
ciety . . . Man does not stand on 
a plateau but somewhere in a con- 
tinuum. From an intelligent study 
of past events, he should be able 
to draw conclusions which will 
help him to direct his future."

in our society," R. Whitney Mitchell said this morning at the spectives through a study of arts and sciences, Babineau spoke 
I 54th Commencement exercises held in the historic First Parish on "Adam, Eve, and a Balance of Perspectives.'-' "What is it 
Church. that the college of arts and sciences fundamentally offers to the 

student?" he asked. "1 suggest it is, or should be, this — first, 
the opportunity of seeing the complexity of the human situation, 
and secondly, the opportunity to learn to live in terms of this 
complexity, to deal with the many levels of human existence. 

"Man has to operate in a physical universe as well as a 
moral, spiritual one. He has difficulties in both. Both are a 
source of distress, and man is a divided being, existing simul- 
taneously in two kingdoms. 

Physical or Spiritual 

"This view of the human condition is not a new one, of 

course, but it does pose difficulties. A man has to operate in 

the physical universe. Even the mystic does not escape this. 

And, although it has been denied occasionally, there always 

seems to be a necessity, an imperative, that man operate in the 

spiritual dimension/ Life without ethical problems, life without 

questions of moral good and evil, life without poetry and song 

and prayer seems impossible to sustain in the long run. 

"It is this divided nature with which the educated man must 

come to grips today, as in the past," according to Babineau. 

"But what discovery does this study bring him? He finds that 
to do something >. not sufficient; we must also know why. Ed- through the centurie8 man ' 8 thought haa> , ike , pendulurn , ru9ned

I would not argue with them for one moment if they limited this exi8tencCi and now to anot h er . 

idea to a course in how to think.' " Mitchell's talk was entitled 

"The Uninquiring Mind." 

In keeping with Bowdoin tradition, the only speakers at 
this morning's exercises were four members of the senior class. 
In addition to Mitchell, they were G. Raymond Babineau of 
Hempstead, N. Y., Peter N. Anastas, Jr.. of Gloucester, Mass.. 
and David A. Kranes of Belmont, Mass. 

Learn From History . 

After describing the philosophy and practices of the croup, 
that adheres to pragmatism, instrumenfalism, and neo-educa- 
tion — learning by doing — Mitchell said, "I do not doubt that 
educational pragmatists are sincere in their convictions, but I 
fee) rather strongly that they are deluding themselves. Man 
does not stand on a plateau but somewhere in a continuum. He 
should not completely ignore the past, but rather should study it 
to find out why he is the way he is, and how he got that way. 
From an intelligent study of past events, he should be able' to 
draw conclusions which will help him to direct his future. 

"The primary concern of education should be to train the 
child to think, and this can best be accomplished through sub- 
ject-matter courses which exercise the intellect. Knowing how

187 seniors received their bach- 
elors' degrees this morning in the 
154th Commencement exercises at 
the First Parish Church. This was 
the culmination of commencement 
week exercises that opened last 
Sunday afternoon with a bacca- 
laureate service delivered by 
President Coles in the Parish 
Church. At that time the Presi- 
dent stated that "higher educa- 
tion is dangerous, and attending 
a college such as Bowdoin is dan- 
gerous business." The danger in 
college, according to Dr. Coles, is 
that "one may be forced into a 
conformity with his group, with 
the thoughts of the college, with 
his peers, with the ideas of -the 
previous generation.'' This is in 
contrast with developing his own 
independent thoughts, his own an- 
alytical powers, his ow» determin- 
ation to consider ideas on their 
merits rather than because they 
are in conformity with his prev- 
ious experience. 

Great Men 

"In other words, the danger lies 
not in the tendency to non-con- 
formity, but rather in the ten- 
dency to conformity." President 
Coles pointed to outstanding ex- 
amples of non-conformity through- 
out history — Jesus, Galileo, Co- 
pernicus, Columbus, Caeser, Abra- 
ham Lincoln. Theodore Roosevelt, 
Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, 
Billy Mitchell, and Admiral Hy- 
man Rickover. All of these men 
"knew what they wanted or what 
they believed in a given and par- 
ticular situation and in the gen- 
eral principle as it might apply in 
the world around them. The ac- 
tions of all these men were based 
upon their belief in this one thing, 
and their actions were taken with- 
out regard to the personal conse- 
quences which might be involved. 
As a result, these men made con- 
tributions far beyond any other 
individual contribution of their

Literature Since World War II"

Of the 1100 high school stu- 
dents who applied for admission 
220 will enter Bowdoin next fall 
In the class of 1963. The students 
are from 20 states with 70% from 
New England. For the first time 
In many years. Maine has the 
largest delegation with 68. Massa- 
chusetts has 60, New York 24, 
New Jersey 17, Connecticut 13, 
New Hampshire 8, and Pennsyl- 
vania 7. Showing a startling shift 
from recent years. 78% of the 
freshmen will have public high 
school backgrounds while 70% of 
those will be from schools with 
more than 100 students. Of par- 
ticular interest Is the high schol- 
astic rating of '63. 97% of the 
public school students were in 
the upper quarter of their class- 
es and 87% were in the upper fifth. 
Of the private school students 
70% were in the upper half of 
their graduating classes. The 
median score of the class of 1962 
on the College Board Scholastic 
Aptitude Tests was 25 points 
higher than the previous class. 
This class of '63 has jumped 25 
points higher than last year's. Of 
the 41 Bowdoin Sons who applied 
29 were admitted and 22 have en- 

There will be 56 scholarship re- 
cipients in the entering class with 

• total of 167.700 in scholarship sup debaters 

aid. $3,800 in loans, and $1,800 in 
Campus Bursaries. 

The class has a great deal of po- 
tential leadership as shown from 
its glowing record in secondary 
schools. Fifty-two of the students 
were Presidents of their class or 
student council as compared to 
26 in the Class of 1962. Foriy-six 
attended Boys State, 11 Won the 
Harvard Book Prize, and two- 
thirds of the entire class partici- 
pated in at least one varsity 

The class of '63 promises to bol- 
ster Bowdoin's sagging athletic 
teams with a great many high 
school stars, particularly in foot- 
ball. There are 57 varsity football 
letter winners In the incoming 
class with several All-State and 
All-County stars. There are also 
45 varsity baseball letter winners. 
35 track and cross-country, 33 
basketball. 14 hockey. 14 swim- 
ming and 44 other sports. The con- 
tributions that the new class will 
make to Bowdoin's teams looks 
most encouraging, with the po- 
tential appearance stronger than 
recent classes. The college has at- 
tracted some equally outstanding 
freshmen in the fields of music, 
student government, and debating. 
There will be two state champions

Image Of The College . 

The psychological complexes of inferiority and superiority 
have become household words in the modern vocabulary. Hid- 
den desires and disguised memories exert sufficient pressure to 
bend our thoughts nod, even our personalities. Complexes do not 
stop with the individual however. They can shade the attitude 
of a community, a society, and even the Ivy covered philosophy 
of a small New England • college. Since Bowdoin is such a 
school and since this is Commencement Day, a time supposed- 
ly reserved for thoughtful evaluation, perhaps it would be wise 
to study this question more closely. 

Prevailing Attitudes 
The prevailing attitudes cm a college campus bombard 
the undergraduate throughout his four years. The value he 
will place on his ooHege career is greatly determined by the 
campus opinion on this subject as a whole. Both the "superi- 
ority" and "inferiority" orientated schools can create unfortu- 
nate repercussions for their student bodies. 

Rationalization ia popular in both situations. In one the per- 
son with less ability needs encouragement and in the other, the 
Rifted individual tads it necessary to qualify limitations as ac- 
tual signs of superiority.

a Bromo-Seltzer. Tfck-Tick. 

Soon the moment would arrive: 
ears and eves strained. Tick-Tick. 


A moment passed, the gentle calm 
before the storm — and then: 

What chaos there! What words 


Some tool had counted wrong 

As an example of the latter I would cite a recent editorial 
in the new sp aper of a neighboring college, advocating the ad- 
vantages of poverty, it wen stated that the students who arrive 
there "with hunabte means tend to appreciate more the facili- 
ties and opportunataaa to learn than do, any, our friendly neigh- 
bors down in Bus ne ukk . . . . (We) should remain small, but 
(we) also should avoid the sicknesses and spoils which often 
affect small wealthy schools." Unfortunately the entire edit- 
orial cannot be quoted as it clearly illustrates where the in- 
feriority complex of an entire school can lead. A college of 
Uriah Heeps proclai min g their "humbleness" ia a dismal pros- 
pect indeed. Reason has bowed here to senseless conjecture 
and unsupported hypotheses. The "superiority" schools which 
refuse to acknowledge the chinks in their foundations are in a 
similar unhealthy situation. 

Ego Defensive Mechanisms 

Some of today's graduates will undoubtedly qualify their 
Bowdoin educations in the future. How often have we heard 
the cry, "Now if Bowdoin had that kind of endowment we'd get 

| *uch and such tool" Conversely, there is the oft-repeated ob- 

— servation, *"We placed seventh in the latest survey of small 
men's colleges . . . tee how near the top we are." Ego defensive 
mechanisms have no place in education. We actually find a 
paradox here. Our endowment classes us as a wealthy "super- 
; iorily" school in some eyes. At the same time it handicaps us 
from offering certain opportunities enjoyed in schools of similar 
caliber but greater funds. It must be kept in mind that evalua- 
tions are relative things — both positive and negative aspects 
must be recognized. 

Bowdoin's "Image" 
In the soon to be releeeed President's Report which some 
have had the good fortune to read this weekend. President 
Cole* stresses the importance of an institutions "image" which 
. denotes the manner in which the public views it. Be sure that 
_ the image of Bowdoin you take away this afternoon is the true 
image. Be proud of your alma mater for what it has accom- 
plished and what it will accomplish. Only through the strength 
and help of you, her eons, can the college hope to attain the 
goals you e n vision fur her. Good luck in the future is wished 
you both.

POLAR Polar Bear S ailors, Golfers Crowned State Champs

By Joa) 

Another Polar Bear athletic season hat come to an end. 
We found ourselves state champions in golf and sailing. We will 
be losing such Bowdoin stalwarts as 1959 Class Marshall. Larry 
Wilkms, our track captain and one of the most outstanding run- 
ners to appear on the White scene for many years; hoop captain. 
Dick Willey. first recipient of the Paul Nixon Basketball trophy; 
hockey stars and past captains, Bobby Fritz and Roger Coe; 
football captain. Gene Waters, president of the graduating class; 
golfer, cross-country runner, and hoop star. Tommy McGovern. 
and baseball stars. Tony Berlandi, Bren Teeling, and Macey 
Rosenthal, all of whom have at one time during their college 
career been named to the All-Maine team. The year 1 958- 1959 
also saw the advent of a new hockey coach, Sid Watson, who re- 
placed Nels Corey, the new football mentor, and the retirement 
of Adam Walsh, who led the Polar Bear griddera for many years. 
The various teams on campus, with the exception of the above- 
mentioned duo, plus the track squads, had somewhat disappoint- 
ing results, although each showed a small spark during its long 


Congratulations to Dick Willey on his reception of the first 
Paul Nixon Basketball Trophy named after the Dean of the 
College from 1918 until 1 94 7. Dick, the shortest man on the 
squad who was this year's leading scorer as well as an out- 
standing leader as captain, is well-deserving of this new award. 

State Champs ■ 

As previously-mentioned, the golf and sailing teams were 
crowned 1959 Maine State Champions. The golfers will lose 
graduating seniors, Tom McGovern and Lee Hitchcock, and 
should be in strong contention for the tide with six men return- 
ing next season, along with this year's frosh squad. The sailors, 
who have continually been lauded for their achievements, ended 
up fifth in New England. They will lose Carl Olsson, a junior, 
to B.U. Medical School. 


The strong showing of this year's frosh teams, especially in 
basketball and hockey, plus the return of many now-seasoned 
veterans should help the White athletic scene. It is our hope 
that the Class of 1963 will bring to the campus athletes who will 
aid in turning the tide fur Buwuoin spurts.

Richard C. Willey, Jr., captain 
of the 1958-59 basketball team, 
has been named the first recipient 
of the Paul Nixon Basketball Tro- 

The Nixon Trophy, the gift of 
an anonymous donor, has been 
named in honor of the late Paul 
Nixon, who served as Dean from 
1918 until 1947, Precognition of 
his interest in competitive athlet- 
ics and sportsmanship. It will be 
inscribed each year with the name 
of the Bowdoin varsity basketball 
player who has made "the most 
valuable contribution to his team 
through his qualities of leadership 
and sportsmanship." A memento 
will be presented to the recipient. 

Willey holds several all-time 
Bowdoin basketball records. One 
is for the most successful free 
throws in a single game. He set a 
mark of 12 out of 13 against Colby 
on January 12. 1957, and later that 
same season erased this record 
with 16 out of 17 against Maine 
on February 23. In that game he 
hit 13 consecutive free throws and 
also had 12 out of 13 during the 
first half for a single half record. 

During 1956-57 Willey also set 
a record for the highest foul 
shooting average, with 113 suc- 
cessful shots out of 138 attempts 
— an average of .819. During the 
past season he led Bowdoin in 
scoring with 329 points and an 
average of 14.3 per game. At 5' 9" 
tall and 145 pounds he was the 
shortest and lightest man on the 

Paul Nixon, for whom the tro- 
phy is named, was a 1904 grad- 
uate of Wesleyan, where he was 
a member of the varsity football 
and track teams. He was selected 
as the first Rhodes, Scholar from 
Connecticut and studied at Ox- 
ford University in England for 

three years. Before coming to 
Bowdoin in 1909, he taught at 
both Princeton and Dartmouth.

Riley of Brunswick, who are 
spending the year in Germany and 
Austria, have been of "great as- 
sistance" to the American Embas- 
sy m Vienna, according to a let- 
ter received recently by Bowdoin 
College Fresident James S. Coles. 

In his letter Richard C. Wooton, 
cultural attache at the Embassy, 
wrote, "During their stay la Aus- 
tria Professor and Mrs. Riley have 
generously offered their time and 
energies to help us in our efforts 
to encourage more teaching about 
America in Austrian schools and 
universities. In a course designed 
for Austrian educators. Profes- 
sor Riley gave a splendid series of 
lectures on various aspects of 
American literature, and Mrs. 
Riley's talk on the life of an Am* 
erican professor's wife won the 
hearts of all who heard her. 

"I am sure that you and Bow- 
doin are most fortunate in having 
the Rileys as members of your 
faculty family." 

Dr. Riley, who is Professor of 
German at Bowdoin, is studying 
in Germany and Austria this year 
under a Guggenheim Fellowship. 
He is working on the problem of 
the relationship among religion, 
philosophy, and literature.

lege of arts and sciences »o that each man can appreciate the 
variety of ways of knowing about the universe in which he lives 
and then allow him to find the balance of perspectives which he 
for • complete existence as a man." 

The Doty of the Artist 

In his talk. "The Artist in the Modern World." Anastas 
said, "We do not live in an age which is cognizant of what it 
stands for, what it is, what its meaning and purposes are. So, 
more than ever, we need the artist to help us define and redefine 
ourselves, our values — to show us exactly where he thinks we 
are going wrong. 

"But the artist must be more than a social critic. Art which 
is basically social criticism oftentimes, while having an exciting 
immediacy, lacks the largeness and timeless quality which a 
good work of art must have. A good work of art must stand 
not only for its own time, but for all time: it must stand along 
with historical scholarship as a document of the age out of which 
it grew. ... It must have universality. And most of the art of 
social criticism in our day has none of this. 

"The artist must also be a thinker," according to Anastas. 
"His work must have the validity of a philosophical basis. Our 
age is sadly deficient in this art. Most of the so-called literature 
produced in our age begins and ends with the simple recording 
of reality. Hundreds of novels roll off the presses every year 
. . . and readers turn to them because they are entertaining, un- 
thoughtprovoking and a la mode, just as much so as most of 
present-day television, movies, and the theater. 

Vital Force* 

"The artist in the modern world can be a vital force. " His 
creative efforts can enrich our lives; he can challenge our ideals, 
our mores. He can invite us to explore human experiences more 
fully. Most important of all, the artist can compel us to -look 
into ourselves, to re-evaluate our personal and intellectual lives, 
to understand ourselves. For if we cannot understand our own 
motives in this life, if we cannot minister to our own minds and 
lives, we have no business ministering to our neighbors." 

Kranes, the fourth speaker, took as his title "A Corridor of 
Certainty." In his remarks, which took the form of an impres- 
sionistic story, he told of a young man named Jim and his per- 
sonal movement away from the exact, the planned, and the un- 
imaginative to a life that allowed for outside forces, the world, 
the unexpected. "He must leave room in the span of years — 
which lead like a corridor of sea away from him, meeting some- 
where the sky — room for the unexpected. There must be 
room within this span for the unexpected entrance of gulls and 
ocean's waves. But what is perhaps more important, there must 
be room for Jim to move and react when such water or water 
birds enter." 

Imagined events in a small boy's creative, playing mind 
seldom really occur, "but when they do, it is when room to react 
to the unexpected and indefinite. has been left between the sub- 
ject and his object .... Somewhere out on these neighbor is- 
lands, between a solitary gull and a revealed and distant rock 
there lies a corridor of sea stretching far away beyond all cer- 
tainty of sight." ^^^^

Bowdoin Family 

Bowdoin College is holding a 
unique exhibit of material relat- 
ing to the Bowdoin family in the 
library from June 7 through 
June u. Among the various ob- 
jects on display from the College 
Museum of Fine Art's silver col- 
lections are a beautiful soup tur- 
een with casing and cover, a pair 
of matched mugs, and a Paul Re- 
vere punch ladle, all engraved with 
the coat of arms of Governor 
Bowdoin of Massachusetts (1726- 
1790) or the Bowdoin crest. 

On loan to the College for this 
occasion are a rare set of silver 
candlesticks by John Noyes (circa 
1700) from the Boston Museum of 
Fine Arts, two silver wine coolers 
and a verriere owned by William 
A. G: Mlnot of Greenwich, Con- 
necticut, and two silver tea cad- 
dies and silver sooons from the 
private collection of Mrs. Walter 
S. Lenk of Brookfleld. Connecti- 
cut. Mr. Minot has also loaned the 
College a Copley miniature of 
Governor Bowdoin as well as a 
miniature of Sir Peter Temple, a 
relative of the Governor. 

Also on display will be several 
letters signed by the Governor 
for whom the College was named 
in 1794, as well as other docu- 
ments signed by the latter's fath- 
er and son, both of whom, like the 
Governor, were named James 
Bowdoin. The exhibit also includes 
autograph letters of George 
Washington and Benjamin Frank- 
lin addressed to the Governor 
from the Library's collections. 

The exhibit was organized by a 
member of the faculty, Dr. Ger- 
ard J. Brault, who recently com- 
pleted a monograph on Pierre 
Baudouin. the French Huguenot 
ancestor of the Bowjjoin family 
who came to America in 1686, 
setUed first in what is now Port- 
land. Maine, and later moved to 
Boston where he died in 1706. 

Maine Artiste 

From June 10 to July 18 the 
College Museum will exhibit work 
by Charles G. Chase of Brunswick 
and Stephen M. Etnier of South 
Harpswell. In connection with the 
exhibit there will be an open house 
at the Museum on Sunday, June 
14, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. The 
public ,is invited to attend. 

Mr. Chase, who has. lived in 
Maine for many years, recently 
moved to Brunswick. "He is wide- 
ly known for his wood carvings 
of birds, many examples of which 
are owner by local art-lovers and 
discriminating collectors," reports 
Professor Carl N. Schmalz Jr., 
Curator of the Art Museum. 
"Long a student of birds, he 
brings to his sculpture a breadth 
of understanding and sympathy of 
treatment which make his inter- 
pretations outstanding expressions 
of each species' unique vitality. 

"In addition, ho is an artist who 
feels the beauty of the varied 
wood which he employs for his 
work, and succeeds in uniting the 
quality of the wood with the qual- 
ity of the bird carved In it. 

"Stephen Etnier is also a long- 
time Maine resident. His paint- 
ings, greatly appreciated by his 
neighbors, are nationally known 
as well. He works in a personal 
style developed through his own 
observation of nature coupled 
with a sensitive perception of the 
more fugitive qualities of light 
and atmosphere.

President Coles 
Lauds The Value 
Of Conviction 

"Your college years must be 
years of habitual critical analysis 
and rational thought, truthful ex- 
pression, and determined convic- 
tion," President Coles toM the 
student body Wednesday at the 
annual convocation and Brsi chap 
el service which officially opened 
the College's 158th academic 
at the First Parish Church. 

"With such habits integral with- 
in you." he continued, "I tan pre 
diet with assurance, with convic- 
tion, and," yea, even with certain- 
ty, that in the generation to come 
there will arise from among you 
and your Bowdoin classmates 
leaders in intellect and business 
and the professions out of all pro- 
portion to the number who attend 
this small but proven college." 

Speaking on "The Value oil Con- 
viction," Dr. Coles described Bow- 
doin's recently extended pr«| 
of financial aid, including jobs, 
loans and scholarships. 

"While the majority of skidenfs 
now in college will not l>c too 
much affected by this program," 
he said, beginning with the Class 
of 1964, almost all financial aid 
offered will be in the form of 
combined scholarship and lonna 
This assistance will be des 
to meet the total need oT the stu- 
dent, with the loan portion an op 
tional election for the recipient, 
repayable aftcT grarttmtlon.' 

"In this wav the student him- 
self can manifest his confidence 
in his own future and invest there- 
in,, thus freeing college funds for 
other purposes. This is a long- 
range program, and it will be 
more than a decade before a is 
in full cycle. 

"A year ago Bowdoin was 
among the pioneers in permitting 
the payment of college hills In 
twelve monthly installments, it is 
now among the pioneers of col- 
leges with this expanded program 
of financial aid."

The dangers of "an excessive 
preoccupation with the external! 
tics, the forms, of campus life" 
were the subject of last Thurs- 
day's chapel talk, "A Sense of 
Commitment." by Professor Her- 
bert Ross Brown. Using as his ex- 
ample the near-champion sports- 
man whose "impeccable form 
made him a tennis player's tennis 
player," and who "stoutly refused 
to compromise his "big game' — 
even to win a point," Professor 
Brown pointed out that "for all his 
commitment to form, he failed 
to win a national title or even a 
maior tournament." This man's 
ability to make himself appear the 
better player "even when his 
sweaty, undignified, and scram- 
bling opponents were winning 
most of the points and sets" ren 
ders him comparable to the casual, 
aloof campus cynic who. though 
much admired in undergraduate 
circles, never actually gains or 
wins or does anything. The anal-

with a conspicuous peace. The revitalized Bowdoin squad, 
under the able direction of head coach Nel. Corey, wa. praised

boys had ever played against under hi. reign, yet the many stu-

the eleven hard-fighting gridater. on the field. The cheerlead- 
er, tried to build the spirit, but the stands gave no reply. Even

Class of '02 Provide Strength 

Now that the Bowdoin athletic season has officially been 

initiated for the ensuing year, there may be observed a tremen- 
dous depth of talent in the football squad, originating mainly 
from the freshman ranks of the previous year. With only seven- 
teen lettermen returning this year, the Class of '62 men com- 
prise over half of the present team. The first opportunity that 
the former Cubs seized showed quite markedly, their value to an 
improved Bowdoin football team. Such men on the roster as 
Alvino, BuckRn. Panteleakos, Robarts, Saunders, Speliotis, and 
Fernald splendidly filled in the vacated positions of the departed 
starters of last year. 

Ted Gardner 

Most assuredly, mention should be made of the initial start- 
ting role of Ted Gardner in a Bowdoin uniform. Gardner, 
listed as a member of the junior class, transferred during his 
sophomore year from Notre Dame, and at a result, was declared 
ineligible to participate in athletic competition for Bowdoin 
last year. Gardner, despite Bowdoin's loss to Tufts, displayed 
magnificent football prowess in his role of halfback and punter. 
He accounted for perhaps half of Bowdoin's yardage and 
proved his defensive play invaluable on several occasions in the 


With the advent of the 1959 campaign, Bowdoin under- 
graduates and alumni got its first look at a reportedly very im- 
proved squad under the capable leadership of C. Nels Corey, 
former varsity hockey coach and former captain of the 1939 
Bowdoin gridders under the direction of the man he replaced, 
Adam Walsh. Although the opening game was not particularly 
encouraging,' it most certainly was not discouraging. The team 
showed much potential, color, and offensive power. However, 
judgments must be reserved for the close of the season. What 
ca,n be said in that the squad of '59 will be one of the most 
thoroughly conditioned and spirited squads to wear the White 
in many a year. 

Nels was graduated from Bowdoin, a member of the Class 
of '39. For three years, he played tackle, and was captain his 
senior year. He was twice honored by selection to the All 
Maine team. He was elected to the All New England hockey 
team as a goalie and started at first base for the Polar Bear 
nine. * In his three varsity years, he was awarded nine letters in 
these three sports. He was elected president of his class and of 
Delta Upsilon fraternity and served on the Student Council for 
three years. 

Colby entrusted Corey with the head coaching vacancy and 
football line coach position in 1949. In 1951 he received the 
head football coaching job there, but returned after a year's 
lapse to Maine Central Institute. . There his teams won four con- 
secutive Maine preparatory school titles — in 1948, 49, 52, and 

During the season of 1954-55, he coached frosh football 
and hockey at Williams, where he won the Little Three Football 
title. He returned to Bowdoin in 1955, coaching football, 
freshman hockey, and baseball. In July of 1957 he became 
head coach of hockey, and was forced to vacate this position 
with the appointment of head coach last December. 



The Watte h shown above practicta* i* tlus wtfek's ostttsst With 
Wesleyan Cardinals, under the- cafMiMs direction of its new coach, 
NeU Corey. The game; will be played before a large crowd of Bowdoin 
parents and alumni. 




This Saturday, the White will 
take on a reputedly strong Wes- 
leyan squad of over fifty men, 
coached by Norm Daniels before 
a Parents' Week-End crowd at 
Whittier Field. The Cardinals, who 
replaced Trinity on the Bowdoin 
schedule, will be playing their first 
game at Bowdoin in over • Ave 
years. In their last encounter with 
the Polar Bears in '58. at Middle- 
town, the Cardinals triumphed 32- 

Coach Daniels, beginning his 
25th season at Wesleyan, feels 
•that, depth in the line will be his 
Key problem this season as he 
tries to improve 1958's record at 
four wins and four losses. Guard 
Dave Mitchell, tackles Al Brooks 
and Marty Jaskot and seven other! 
lettermen graduated last June. 

In the backfield, Daniels will be 
faced with finding a replacement 
for Captain-elect Carl Ahttriis, who 
was killed in an automobile acci- 
dent last February. The team has 
not elected a new captain, but 
name captains win be appointed 
each Saturday. Davi Eklund. who 
played every name at fullback, al- 
so graduated. 

Returning linemen include: ends 
Jim Dover, 6-1. 175 pounder and 
senior and a good receiver, and. 
Dave Gordon, 6-1, 167 pound ju- 
nior, good on defense and a fair 
receiver; tackles Cliff Schaefer, 
6-2, 201 lb. senior, an experienced 
lineman, and Dave Sucher, 6-2, 
195 pound junior, a reserve last 
year. Al Erda, a standout sopho- 
more center last season, left the 
college. Bob Lanigan. a tough de-' 
fenslve center, looks like the top 
candidate for Erda's job, but he 
will have to beat out John Ray 
and George Komaridis. Lanigan, 
at 200, is by far the biggest can- 
didate for the middle of the line, 
with Ray and Komaridis expected 
to weigh around 185. 

Dom Squatrito, an outstanding 
halfback last season, will be con- 
verted to guard, the position he 
played in high school in Manches 
ter. Conn. 

Jim Sams, a 6'2", 180 lb. sen- 
ior, who was out with injuries 
most of last season, should be the 

team's top quarterback, if he can 
run and throw as well as he has in 
the past- His (op competitor will 
be John Alvord, 5'11", 170 pound 
junior,- who broke his leg in an 
early practice session last Septem- 

Daniels has three excellent half- 
back prospects. Jim Thomas, now 
a junior, is the fastest man in 
the squad; and $ expected to 
have his best season. Two other 
speedsters, Dick Huddleston, who 
can also play a creditable quarter- 
back, and little Tony DeMiro, who 
made some spectacular long runs 
last year, should have fine sea- 
sons. Jack Mitchell, a 5'10". 180 
lb. junior, gets the pre-season nod 
at fullback An outstanding re 
serve last season, he can also play 


Coach Frank Sabasteanski is 
currently working with nine can- 
didates for the 1959 cross country 
team. Three lettermen are in- 
cluded among the nine hopefuls 
for the seven starting spots on 
the Polar Bear harrier squad. 

Captain True Miller of Marble- 
head, Mass.. Ed Bean of Cumber- 
land Center, and John Doherty of 
Chevy Chase. M.D., all seniors, 
are the returnees around whom 
Sabasteanski must build his 1959 

Six sophomores make up the re- 
mainder of the roster. They are 
J. Eldon Craig of Westmount, 
Que., Canada. Mark Youmans of 
Schenectady. N. Y., Phil Boulter 
of Concord. N. H., Wendell Sides 
of Minot, Mass., Sidney Wolla- 
cott of Fitchburg, Perm. 

The Polar Bear thinclads will 
open their season on Amherst and 
Worcester Polytechnic Institute 
in a triangular meet. They will 
then meet three and possibly four- 
other opponents before competing 
in the New England meet on No- 
vember 9. 

Here is a complete schedule:

To Be Given 

A member of Bowdoin's 1959 
football team will be the ftrst re-

Despite an inspiring crowd 
which gathered in Medford for the 
opening game of Bowdoin's 1959 
football campaign, the Polar Bears 
fell prey to ah explosive and pow 
erfUl Tufts team. The crowd was 
one of the best to assemble irl 
years at Tufts as 4500 spectators 
paid their way to witness the 

Throughout the first period, the 
ball changed hands several times 
with neither team advancing Up- 
on the other. Then with three 
minutes and thirty-eight seconds 
left to play in the period. Tufts got 
possession of the ball on their 
own 42 yard line. Murdock Mc- 
Donald, a 195 lb. senior from New 
Bedford, Mass., crashed over left 
tackle from the nine to cap a 
fourteen play attack at 1:01 re- 
maining in the period. McDonald 
took a hand-off and broke through 
again to score the two point con- 
version, giving Tufts an 80 mark. 
Bowdoin hardly got possession 
of the kickoff after the TD when 
a clipping penalty forced them 
way back, deep in their own ter- 
ritory. A short punt to the White 
32 was promptly hailed by Tufts 
and the Elephants were off again. 
On the second play from scrim- 
mage, McDonald once more added 
to his points as he scooted through 
right tackle for 29- yards and the 
second Tufts score of the day. 
He then bulled hiB way through 
left tackle to score the added two 
points at 4:12 Of the period. 

The Bowdoin Eleven then took 
to the offensive; as timely passing 
by QB Jack Condon and the bril- 
liant running of junior Teddie 
Gardner enabled Bowdoin to score 
at 9:52 of the second period. The 
61 yard drive Was highlighted by 
Condon's flat pass to Teeter Ken- 
nedy from the five yard line. The 
White failed to score the extra 
two points as an end run fell just 
short of the goal line. 

In the early minutes of the 
fourth period. Bowdoin muffed a 
golden opportunity to get within 
winning mgrgin. The Bears took 
the. ball on their own 17 and fell 
just short of their second TD of 
the afternoon on tbe Tu{ts' three. 
Jack Condpn's key passes were 
the Impetus of Bowdoin's futile 
attack. Tufts' Co-Capt. Bart Hig- 
gins tackled Terry Sheehan on 
fourth down arid the ball revert- 
ed to Tufts. 

On the first play from scrim- 
mage after recovering the ball on 
downs, speedy Bob McLucas slant- 
ed oVer right tackle and appeared 
to be "off to the races" as he ran 
97 yards to the Bowdoin goal.* 
However officials nullified the spec- 
tacular run in ruling that McLu- 
cas had stepped out of bounds on 
his sideline dash at the Tufts 48. 
McLucas, however, had to re- 
nounce his touchdown fame as a 
teammate, George Kinally, a for- 
mer Boston English star, raced 

from the 33 to score four plays 
later. He then was the receiver 
of a pass from QB Frank LeLeone 
for the last two points of the 
Despite Bowdoin's loss of Valued 
starters due to injuries and sick 
ness, the White's opening fared 
better than expected. The team is 
anxiously awaiting the return* of 
center Dave Fernald, Joe Augus- 
tini, Dave Barron, and the return- 
ing letterman. Jack Cumming*. 

The Blue and Brown certainly 
mopped up the White in the run- 
ning game as Tufts scooted 355 
yards as compared to Bowdoin's 
mere 95 yards of rushing. How- 
ever, the Polar Bears proved their 
pass catching ability as Jack Con- 
don teamed up with his ends and 
backfield to gain 132 more yards. 
The key runners for Tufts were 
of course McDonald, followed by 
McLucas and Kinally with 75 and 
64 yards respectively gained. Bow- 
doin's passing attack was com- 
mented on by Tufts' Coach Harry 
Arlanson as he said in an inter- 
view after the game, 'There's 
plenty of room for improvement 
on pass defense, and I think that 
the heat slowed us ur a bit," 

The Jumbos have now tipped 
Bowdoin for the sixth consecu- 
tive year.

Bette Davis, Gary Merrill To Star 
In "The World Of Carl Sandburg" 

' NO. 8 

Day Crowd 

On October 8th and 9th the 
Pickard Theater will be the scene 
of one of the highlights of the col 
lege year. After painstaking re- 
hearsals at Sprague Hall, Cape 
Elizabeth Grange. "The World of 
Carl Sandburg" by Norman Cor- 
wln will premiere at Bowdoin Col- 
lege. The Masque and Gown is 
dedicating its fifty-seventh season 
to the show's stars, Bette Davis 
and Gary Merrill '37, "who start 
their cross country tour with pre 
views in its benefit," Prof. Quin- 
by announced last week. 

This show, which is solidly book- 
ed from now until early next 
year, promises to attract much 
national acclaim. After its initial 
performances at Bowdoin College, 
It will move to the State Theatre 
in Portland and then on down the 
East Coast. 

Carl Sandburg Is a Pulitzer 
Prize winner and, of course, is 
well known as the country's out- 
standing expert and biographer of 
Abraham Lincoln's life. Mr. Sand- 
burg is also, however, a poet of 
some note, and it is through this 
medium that he will be presented 
by this group. Mr. Cm-win has 
tastefully arranged some of Carl 
Sandburg's best works, both pub- 
lished and unpublished, to give 
the audience the best outlook into 
Sandburg's philosophy and, to 
quote a term from the title of the 
play, "world." 

Norman Corwin, the director of 
the show, is the proud possessor 
of two Peabody Awards, top award

Henry Addresses 
Forum On Present 
Political Situation 

After a brief business meeting 
on September 29th, the Political 
Forum sponsored an informal ad- 
dress bv Mr. Merton Henry, Bow- 
doin '50, and until the last elec 
tlon. Senator Frederick G. Payne's 
executive assistant in Washing 

Mr. Henry prefaced Ms re- 
marks with this description of an 
incident that took place when he 
was president of the Political For- 
um. A particularly dry, verbose, 
but well known politician attract- 
ed an audience of only four men 
for a Political Forum meeting in 
the Moulton Union. In a panic, 
Henry, who is an Alpha Dell, with 
a Chi Psl rushed into Moore Hall 
and announced that all A.D. and 
Chi Psl pledges were required to 
attend the lecture. The day was 
saved with the pledges dutifully 
sitting through a long tirade of 
political oratory, undoubtedly re- 

C rasing a bitter hatred for haz 

Henry considered the most Im- 
portant piece of legislation of the 
first session of the 86th Congress 
to be the Hawaiian Statehood Act, 
and stated that the greatest ac- 
complishment as well as the most 
controversial piece of legislation 
was the labor bill. He thought the 
absence of any farm legislation 
was the greatest failure. He 
felt that the hasty, disorderly 
Democratic retreat from Washing- 
ton in September was the result 
of President Eisenhower's efforts 
and the overthrow of outmod- 
ed Republican congressional lead- 
ership. Representative Halleck has 
"drive, vigor, and is a party man 
to the hilt — and Senator Dirksen 
is a far more effective' leader than 
the Republicans have had in the 
Senate for many years," Mr. Hen- 
ry said. t 

The speaker refuted Represen- 
tative Frank Coffin's speech of the 
previous week to the Political 
Forum, feeling that Coffin had 
misrepresented the Washington 
situation. Mr. Henry felt that 
there would have been no "mod- 
erate" legislation passed if the 
President had not been willing to 
veto the poor, spendthrift bills the 
Democratic leadership pushed 
through Congress in the early 
stages of the session. 

In response to a question about 
the effect of the" labor bill on the 
presidential race, posed by Jed 
Stout, Mr. Henry proclaimed, "It 
seems to me Senator Kennedy has 
lost support although he took a 
courageous ' stand. The AFL-CIO 
was very unhappy about the bill, 
so Senator Johnson was hurt. 
There was little effect on either 
Senator Humphrey or Senator 

Criticism was also leveled at 
Senator Muskie for his "sena- 
torial junket" to studv public 
power projects in the USSR. Mr. 
Henry saw little constructive good 
resulting from Muskie's visiting 
plants mostly built many years 
ago, patterned after American 
power facilities and governed by 
the Communist dictatorship, es- 
pecially since Muskie represents a 
state with private power interests. 
The junket would, however, give 
him considerable publicity. 

Mr. Henrv also condemned both 
Senator Muskie's and Senator 
Smith's votes against the Strauss 
nomination, since Strauss was one 
of the very few men who took any 
interest in Maine's falling textile 

Mr. Henrv discussed in detail 
Maine's political scene, analyzing 
the strengths and weaknesses of 
both the Democratic and Republi- 
can Darties. Later In the year he

Mr. Merrill has been seen on the

His appearance is not to unlike 
that of the poet Sandburg himself

alive, will enable him to bring to 
the audience a vivid impression of

The undergraduate body has

tics on this new and different play. 
Although this is Miss Davis' first 
tour, it has already been heralded 
by some of the country's outstand- 
ing critics. The student body 
therefore has the opportunity to 
see what the theatrical world will 
be probably raving about for some 
time to come. The Masque and

Carl Sandburg's two major 
achievements in 'this world' have 
' been ( 1 ) successive books of poet- 
ry affirming a vigorous faith in 
the common people of American 
farms and factories, and (2) a 
classic biography of Abraham Lin- 
coln, greatest of all commoners. 
Sandburg, following many of the 
innovations made by Walt Whit- 
man, is the greatest of the Prairie 
poets, surpassing Edgar Lee Mas 
ters and Vachel Lindsay by virtue 
of his maturer craftsmanship and 
more discriminating qualities of 
mind. Sandburg bums with a 
broad-gauge Whitmanesque ardor 
and a passionate belief in the dem 
ocratic ideal as well as eloquent 
testamonials of faith in the sound- 
ness of the American spirit. 

Familiar Sandburg poems to 
many are: "Chicago," "Fog," and 
"Cool Tombs" (described by Louis 
Untermeyer as "one of the lovliest 
unrhythmed cadences of our time," 
being a eulogy for Abraham Lin- 
coln.) For his contributions to the 
American literary scene Sandburg 
has won the Pulitzer Prize. 

Look for many changes in this 
spring's issue of the BowdaJn 
Bugle. With a long tradition of 
good yearbooks which rate bettfr

colleges and even comparable

reorganizing much of its "intei

add to the total book-lenam 
Rather, there will be slimmfe

Other positive changes which 
ought to add more zest and "col-

enlarged faculty section with more 
candid shots of the professors, in-

Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick 
presented the Harvey Dow Gib- 
son Cup to Bruce Bockmann repre 
senting the Sigma Nu fraternity 
'n Chapel, last week. The cup, 
awarded annually to the fraternity 
making the largest improvement in 
its scholastic standing, was given 
by Theta Delta Chi in memory of 
Harvey Dow Gibson, '02, who died 
'" 1950. Mr. Gibson served from 
1917 until his death as a distin- 
guished member of the governing 
boards of the college. During 
World War I he was director of 
the American Red Cross. Out- 
standing businessman, champion of 
many good causes, he was a loyal 
and devoted member of his frater 

Originally, the cup was award- 
ed on the basis of improvement 
in point averages. In 1985, how- 
ever, it was felt that making the 
award on the basis of improved 
relative standings among all the 
fraternities would be equally fair. 
Since then, the cup has been 
awarded on that basis. Sigma Nu 
by jumping from ninth to fifth 
improved its standing by four 

years. In an effort to coordinate 
college fund raising, the Bugle may 
not be allowed to invite parents to 
add their contributions. 

Without a patrons page, neces- 
sary changes may not be all for 
the best. One solution may have to 
be paperbacks!

National- Science 
Foundation Gives 
College $26,000 

The College has received a grant 
of $9,450 from the National Scl 
ence Foundation to support an In- 
Service Institute on mathematics 
for secondary school teachers. 
President Coles announced recent- 
ly. Under the program approxi- 
mately 30 mathematics teachers in 
Maine secondary schools will meet 
at Bowdoin once a week over a 
period of thirtv weeks, with all ex 
penses paid. Those completing the 
course mav receive credit at the 
graduate level. 

The Bowdoin In-Service Insti- 
tute began on October 5 and 
close in June of 1960. The instruc- 
tion will he shared by members 
of. the College mathematics de- 
partment, including Professors Ed- 
ward S. Hammond. Cecil T. 
Holmes. Reinhard L. Korgen, Dan 
E. Christie, and Richard L Chit- 
tim. Professor Chittim is the Di- 
rector of the Institute.

Institute are (11 to help teachers 
to become familiar with important 
new material which various writ- 
ing groups are proposing for in- 
clusion in secondary school mathe- 
matics curricula: and (2) to give 
greater perspective to traditional 
subject matter. 

Generally, those selected to

What started out as a great 
week-eml was suddenly trans- 
formed on the afternoon of Oc- 
tober third into something quite 
extraordinary. Not that a Bow- 
doin win was totally unexpected 
— the law of averages dictates 
that nothing can go on forever — 
it was the manner in which it 
was won. This was no fluke win, 
no lucky recovery of a fumble, no 
imbalance of nenalties or errors. 
The Bowdoin football team simply 
out played 'em. Both teams played 
hard and clean: Bowdoin was just 
a bit tougher. When the team 
should by all rights have been 
dog-tired and ready to ease up a 
bR, they didn't. When the ball 
was just at the tip of the fingers 
and should have been dropped, it 
wasn't. When the final whistle 
was near and the crowd should 
have started for the exits, it didn't. 
Even the band sounded better with 
aameone playing a mean trumpet. 
It was a lone: awaited and well de- 
served win. A fine victory in ev- 
ery sense of the word.

At this time of the year, many of us are concerned, to 
some degree, with our various attempts to develop freshmen 
into valuable members of bath their house and their college. 
In spite of the best attempts at learning songs, names, and lore. 
the strongest influence on a freshman is his contact with upper- 
classmen. At parties, mealtimes, and in "bull sessions" the 
freshman observes the upperclassman. sees his tastes and 
samples his opinions and view*. Through this sort of contact 
the freshman learns much more than through any "orientation 
program" of a more formal variety. In his eagerness to be ac- 
cepted as "one of the boys," the freshman rapidly assimilates 
all the characteristics of those he sees about him. He ia only 
too quick to copy the habits of dress, the speech mannerisms, 
and particularly the opinions and outlooks of the upperclassmen. 
' With time, of course, many of the facets of his new personality 
wear off, ljut many of his basic attitudes towards the college and 
its institutions are formed during these first few weeks. Thus it 
is important for the upperclassmen to show the best of them- 
selves to the freshman. 

All upperclassmen have opinions about various men on 
the college faculty and administration. When certain names 
come up in a "bull session," nearly every upperclassman will 
have some authoritative remark to make. The most amazing 
part of this is the small number of these authorities who have 
actually had any personal contact with the man under discussion, 
particularly if the general opinion is unfavorable. It is entirely 
possible for a man to acquire a reputation and have this reputa- 
tion passed down as absolute fact by students who have never 
known him. We are guilty of this, and it is bound to reach 
the freshman who will believe it as fart. He in turn will do his 
bit for the "underground tradition." It is time we stopped 
forcing our prejudices into posterity through tVe wjR el fresh- 
men to copy what they see about them. H is to ear a,f laiitaajn, 
as well as the freshman's and the college's, to allow each man 
to form his own opinions about each msm in the 
not to perpetuate the meaning**** opinion* of 
enced upperclassman of the TV room dynasty. 


Per moat of the freshmen, this 
was their first college weekend. 
It no doubt consisted of a number 
of other firsts, too. Some will re- 
member this weekend all their 
Mves, even though there will be 
larger and noisier ones in the 
future. And of course a few aren't 
even now too sure Just what hap- 
pened. I wonder how many frosh 
and their dates had some sort of 
rwrHeetron that this was the be 

Sinning of the end before that gad 
ttie final wave of the hand. What 
had been a fine romance all 
through high school probably in 
many cases changed with the sur- 
roundings. Even In only two weeks 
of helpful orientation a subtle 
though superficial change at this 
date, has set in. The collegiate 
warp baa begun! A whole new 
string of clever college expres- 
sions has increased the vocabu- 
lary. Hair has been cut. some- 
times an availing amount. There 
is a whole new ah- about many of 
the freshman which can be sum- 
med us as casual. The young lady 
is usually one year behind the 
young man in academic status. 
He has changed, she hasn't, the 
horizons have broadened, and the 
result is usually inevitable. But 
thea. this is a liberal education 
*o let us be liberal in all things. 

Lake atomoved Near Chapel 
No doubt many of the upper 
classmen can remember stumbling 
through the small lake that used 
to form after every rain storm be 
tween Appleton and the Chapel 
This used to seriously impede 
progress through this area during 
the morning ten to ten-thirty cof- 
fee break. In fact it could cause 

so much confusion that one time 
someone actually got into the 
wrong building and had his name 
checked off. Instead of coffee 
he was treated to a view of the 
bloody head of Goliath (fortun- 
ately the rest of Goliath is no- 
where to be seen) clutched in the 
hand of David. There are a bunch 
of women behind him screaming 
and yelling and in general lead- 
ing one to believe that as long as 
this is lop off day with David he 
might as well add a few more 
With the look he has in his eye 
I wouldn't advise any of them to 
invest in necklaces. At any rate 
this confused soul must have 
known someone because the low- 
lands have been drained, filled 
planted and paved. With that 
amount of activity he must have 
known several someones. You 
know how every fraternity has 
some frater who "is in touch" 
This fellow is on the in with the 
mysterious ''someone'' who gets 
everything done in the world 
These people never have to see 
their advisor or big brother. Some- 
times it is the other way around 
There used to be one in my house 
who knew everybody. Two unex- 
plained solar eclipses can be traced 
directly to him and the mornings 
he slept late. .If he hadn't flunked 
out. he would have been a lot of 
help around the place.

They are shutting off the faltt 
now. The other day when 1 was 
driving across the Androscoggin I 
noticed that the Topsham falls 
were up. There wasn't enough wa- 
ter going over to even burble 
much less roar. I suppose though 
with the tourists all gone there 
isn't any need for them until next 
spring. They will leave just 
enough for the Dower plants and 
truck all the rest back up to the 
head of river for next year. (No 
doubt one of those state lobs ) So 
that the falless falls won't be no- 
ticed, a high board fence will soon 
be built on that side of the bridge" 
That fence will consist of one- 
thousand and thirty-seven boards 
(A little bit of useful knowledge 
I picked up in the earlv part of 
my freshman year.) This' does 
serve the purpose of funneling 
driver vision straight ahead, which 
saves the Peieoscot Paoer Co. a lot 
of bother of scraping things off the 
side of buildings. However, if it 
didn't cost too much, I and many 
others would like to see the falls 
run all year. There is sosnething 
heartwarming about looking at 
them in the middle af the winter 
and imagining your creditors 
thrashing about in their midst. 

Words of wisdom from Hamlet 
the hamster: if you want to save 
one dollar and twenty-five out- 
rageous cents the bad parts en 
route one south of Portland have 
been repaved. 

Up to the end of the last world 
war, Norway's foreign policy waa 
that of complete neutrality, based 
on the country'* long tradition of 
love for peace (and perhaps also 
a feeling Of passive contentment) 
— starting just after the end of 
the Viking era. 

Norway today is no longer a 
powerful pirate nation, but a 
small social-democratic country 
clinging fast to the main portion 
of the Scandinavian mountain 
ridge. Looking over our shoulder 
we aee a powerful neighbor in the 
East, waving its red flag of com- 
munism. Looking out across the 
ocean we see the other major 
power, in the West, with its bases 
and missiles facing our way. 

Seeing these great powers, and 
realizing that the world is divid- 
ing into great camps "promoting" 
what it called "peaceful-war," 
Norway no longer could hold its 
old policy of complete neutrality. 
Learning from the bitter exprei- 
ence of World War II, Norway 
established a program of "defend 
sive neutrality," being different 
from tlw previous policy in that 
it takes an active stand in the 
promotion of security against out- 
side aggression — - a more definite 
outlook is given towards the rest 
of the work). Going along with 
this program of defensive neutral- 
ity, Norway has joined the western 
camp and thereby has taken hold 
of a certain guardianship from the 
greater western powers. Norway 
is also a member of NATO, but 
still clinging to the old neutrality 
idea, no foreign oases or forces of 
any kind are allowed to estab- 
lish themselves there. .Even 
though it has joined with greater 
nations in the act of security. Nor- 
way still wants to hold on to its 
individualism as a completely free 
and independent nation, having no 
intentions of becoming" a satellite 
to any power. 

One step in this defensive pro- 
gram is something that might 
seem to be going back into pre- 
historic times — the Norwegians 
are building caves; that is, the 
Army is. The Norwegian army 
and population can now move un- 
derground in case of agression, 
and in a few years you might 
get a glimpse of us as we sit in 
our cave-openings looking into the 
night of non-peaceful war."

Saturdays Victory 

Last Saturday afternoon the horn* crowd had rat first look 
at the products of long months of work by Bowsioia's new head 
football coach Nela Corey, his staff, and his ahepaw. We were 
highly gratified. We would have been even rf it had not been 
the first victory in two season*. 

A more important victory than the obvious one took place 
at Whiltier Field last Saturday. The apathy and defeatism 
which have characterized Bewdom football -fan* lor the loot 
several year* was miraculously dispelled. We? fcaVe gained a 
new respect for our football team. Lot's hope it lasts. Foot- 
ball fans have a notorious reputation for fickleness, and Bow- 
doin fans are undoubtedly no exception*. It ia easy to cheer 
on the team enthusiastically when it's winning — but ft is re- 
markable how quickly football fan*' ardor ohassgea to cynical 
contempt in the face o4> few losses. Let'* try to maintain our 
new-found attitude of loyal enthusiasm and respect for the 
team no matter what happens in the comma; weeks, wtkile hoping 
at the same tune that Saturday's game was a sign of great things 
to come. 

AH the men responsible for Saturday's victory have re- 
flected credit oa tb.em.erve*. They deserve the College's heart- 
felt congratulations and thanks.

A Look At Communism 

Cormhunlsm' is a topic which is 
constantly on the lips of most 
Americans, especially recently dur- 
ing the visit of the head of the 
■i communist world, and there seems 
to be an un-natural building up 
of tension whenever the word com- 
munism is used. Norway, al- 
though bordering with Russia in 
the north, has had very little con- 
flict with the Soviet Union. Only 
once has the communist state tried 
to manage our foreign affairs, and 
that was when Norway joined 
NATO. While the debate in Parli- 
ament (Stortinget) was going on 
concerning the joining of NATO, 
the government received a note' 
from Russia telling it not to join 
the pact, which in the eyes of the 
Soviet government was a definite 
act of aggression upon the people's 
republic. Norway threw the note 
in the waste-basket, joined NATO, 
and nothing more was heard from 
the East about the matter. Other 
than this incident, Norway's re- 
lations with Russia have been 
peaceful, caused by the fact that 
there have been hardly any rela- 
tions at all. 

Norway does have a communist 
party, but its importance is slight 
and its seats in parliament will in 
the future probably vary fr*m 
only one to four seats. At present 
there is one communist in parlia- 
ment. A thing to make clear, 
however, is that the communist 
party in Norway is a Norwegian 
communist party, that is, it is a 
national party, as far as such a 
thing is possible, having but the 
same doctrines as the machinery 
of the USSR. It is not what may 
be termed an international party 
in its strictest sense. When ques- 
tioned upon certain actions in 
Hungary and Israel it was even 
stated by the communist repre- 
sentative to the government that 
he disagreed, to a certain extent, 
with these actions. Political par- 
ties in Norway are rather a con- 
fused and "messed up" lot in any 
case, and it would take many 
page* of explanation in present- 
ing a clear picture of their struc- 
ture and functions, but here we 
are entering upon internal rather 
than external matters. 

Even though a communist party 
does exist in Norway, this fact 
dees not mean that the Nor- 
wegians are looking smilingly to- 
wards Russia — rather the con- 
trary; in fact, when Mr. K. in- 

Harald K. Heggenhougea 

tended to visit Scandinavia this 
summer, so much unfavorable 
newspaper-writing was done that 
he decided to stay at home until 
going to the USA. 

The American Look 
I have often been asked the 
questions: "How do you like the 
US?" or "Do you like yourself 
better here than in Norway?" and 
questions of the same nature. 
These questions are rather diffi- 
cult to answer and I am inclined 
to think they are not very good 
ones in that no good or perhaps 
not even truthful answers can he 

Norway's outlook on the US is, 
however, quite friendly, but the 
general public's views about the 
Americans might tend to be some- 
what differentiatrd, depending up- 
on what kind of American tour- 
ists they have, met or upon how 
many American movies they have 
seen. The openness and the in- 
formal nature of the Americans, 
however, give the seemingly con- 
servative Norwegian a favorable 

The Norwegians that have visit- 
ed the US also have a diversified 
view of the country, depending up- 
on where they have been and 
whom they have met. A couple of 
general observations might, how- 
ever, be the realization of the 
high standard of living and the 
rush and hurried movements in 
every activity. When in Norway 
this summer a theme for debate, 
based on the above-mentioned ob- 
servations, was brought to my at- 
tention: "The standard of living 
vs. the standard of life." Whether 
this is a clevor topic to make the 
European feel better when watch- 
ing those tall "tail-fins" glide by 
or not, I do not know. In any 
case, the topic is not mentioned 
as. a* 1 act of indignation or im- 
pertinence, but rather as a topic 
of interest and perhaps concern. 

So here's to the land of chew- 
ing-gum and big cars from the 
land of trolls, caves, sardines and 
beautiful girls. (Oh thou suffer- 
ing Bowdoin man!) 

If anyone is interested in Nor- 
wegian politics or any other as- 
pect of Norwegian life I would be 
very happy to discuss these topics 
with him. 

Once again, colleges all over the 
country are opening their learned 
gates of knowledge. The not so 
bashful frosh are ordering upper- 
classmen around the campus while 
in respect to college community 
life, "townies" ate shutting their 
windows and barring the doors 
in preparation for another nine 
months Of hibernation. 


The U. of Mass. is starting the 
school year off the same way that 
they left it last spring. At the 
moment, there are two major con- 
troversies which are the talk of 
college circles: the midsummer 
resignation of President Jean Paul 
Mather and campus prohibition. 

Mather's decision came as ho 
surprise to most people as for a 
long time now. he has tried his 
utmost to pass a faculty pay in- 
crease bill. On August 16. the State 
Senate defeated this bill and short 
ly afterwards, the disgusted Math- 
er resigned. Despite his unpopular 
attitudes towards fraternities and 
various campus functions, Pre*. 
Mather will be sorely missed. 

Baidndge Selected 
As Meddiebempster 
T«wr For *59-'60 

The Bowdoin Meddiebempsters 
have chosen a new second tenor. 
G. Raymond Baldridge '60 will re- 
place Jim Cohen in the reknowned 
singing group, it was announced 
last week. A member of Beta The 
ta PI fraternity and a government 
major. Baldridge's singing exper- 
ience at Bowdoin includes three 
years' membership in the Glee 

The Meddles will begin their 
1959-1960 season with a perfor- 
mance at Nasson College, in 
Springvale, this weekend. Home- 
coming weekend will be their first 
performance on campus. 

The new policy of prohibition is 
a direct influence of Mather in his 
still vigorous campaign to clean 
up the U. of Mas*, fraternities and 
sororities. His recommendation 
that alcoholic beverages be ban- 
ned was received by a 413-33 fac- 
ulty vote. Last weekend began the 
college social season and the frat- 
ernities threw a big blast with 
refreshments consisting of ginger 
ale, cokes and punch. Reactions to 
this new type of party were mixed. 
Some approved of the policy while 
others felt that parlor games and 
punch are no substitute* for the 
old fashioned "thrash." 

The Ginchiest 

If you think the parties men- 
tioned above are vicious, wait un- 
til you hear this. Antioch College 
is throwing a scavenger hunt. This 
should prove to be a real swinging 
weekend as the hunt begins Fri- 
day night and ends sometime on 
Saturday. The unusual list of items 
to be found consist of, among oth- 
er things, an Irish Leprechaun, a 
wart and an Outer Mongolian. 
Well, each to his own! 


These Daffynltions, which "were 
discreetly stolen, comprise a week- 
ly column in the U. of Mam. Col- 

Ashtray — something you look 
for while your ashes fall on the 

Mosquito — mobile blood bank. 

Broad minded — typical male. 

Fraternity fifty men who 

drink the same kind of beer. 

Sorority — fifty girls who mooch 
the same kind of beer.

and Friday, Oct. 29, 30, to talk 
with interested students regard- 
ing the current Navy officer train- 
ing programs. 

Information and literature will

Glory be and all hail the White! May this game ah<rtr the 
■way to a season that shall hear the long forgotten peel of the 
chapel bells, intermingled with the strains of Phi Chi, ringing 
•croat the pines to the fraternity victory parties. 


Turning to a leas jovial and, in fact, a very serious and 
disappointing topic, it will be remembered by the upper classes 
that last year the White boasted of one of the finest freshman 
hockey teams in the East, without, and this is the crux of the 
matter, the slightest threat of sacrifice to the high admission 
standards required at Bowdoin. This was the result of a 
concerted effort to get qualified hockey players to choose Bow- 
doin and acted as a much-needed shot in the arm to hockey en- 
thusiasts and a tremendous boost in school morale and pride. 
'We could accept two defeats by the Colby squad because we 
realized that we had not sacrificed scholastic achievements in 
order to have a winning team. Not one man on the first two 
teams was removed from the school because of academic rea- 
son. But what of Colby? Officially we have no reports, but 
what information we have gathered points to the fact that over 
half of their squad has failed to return. 

With this in mind, it would be logical for the undergradu- 
ates to expect a continued effort by both admissions and the 
athletic department to bring another good freshman squad to 
Bowdoin. Hockey can be almost as rewarding on terms of 
publicity and alumni relations as football if we can skttte good 
teams. But what happened) The number of varsity high 
school hockey players present in this year's class is a drastic 
reduction from last year. Why? Surely not because the hockey 
coaching staff and players did not try to persuade qualified 
players to look into Bowdoin. Extensive scouting and held 
trips, mixed with frequent personal interviews were part of the 
program used by hockey players to sell Bowdoin to qualified 
high school players. 

So, if it was not the athletic department, we must turn 
elsewhere — perhaps the denizens of our most ancient building 
are basketball fans and fear-that the Arena, when supplied with 
a good team, will leave the Sergeant gym void of both rooters 
and candidates for the basketball team, for sorely the freshman 
class does not lack qualified basketball players, nor football, 
track, or baseball. 

But then one with faith in the folk at Mass. Hall can always 
say that the Fates are against us and we were hot meant to de- 
velop a hockey team to lift Bowdoin up to the ranks of Dart-

eign Service which await qualified 
young men and women. Mr. Galen

Sequel To Award Winner 
Released To Faculty 

In the honored position of fol- 
lowing last year's national award 
winning Catalogue, the first edi- 
tion of the 1959 1960 Bowdoin Col- 
lege Catalogue has just been pub- 
lished. The 1958-1959 Bulletin was 
awarded first place among college 
catalogues in a judging at the an- 
nual competition of the American 
College Public Relations Associa- 
tion in French Lick, Indiana, last 
July. The award commended the 
book's value primarily as a piece 
of college publicity, based on the 
appeal of its format, appearance, 
and composition. 

Though using much the same 
format as last year's, the 1959- 
1960 catalogue contains several re- 
visions, including several new pho- 
tographs and a new section on the 
Undergraduate Research Fellow- 
ship Program. The catalogue was 
prepared by the faculty commit- 
tee on college publications, Pro- 
fessor Brown, chairman. A second 
edition, containing a student di- 
rectory and available to under 
graduates, will be published later 
this fall.

Bob Allen and his Chief Operator, Mrs. Julia Chipman, discuss Long 
Distance records which will soon be converted to automatic processing. 

Meet Bob Allen— he's growing fast 
with a fast-growing company 

Robert E. Allen got his B.A. degree 
from Wabash College in June, 1957, 
and went to work with Indiana Bell 
Telephone Company at Indianapolis. 
"It looked like a growing company 
where I could grow, too," he says. 

It was. Today he is an Assistant 
Traffic Supervisor there. He's in charge 
of six other supervisory people and 
about 100 telephone operators. 

' Bob attributes his rapid progress to 
two main factors: the thorough train- 
ing he received and the steady growth 
of the telephone business. 

"I was trained to be a telephone man- 

ager, not just a traffic specialist," he 
points out. "1,'ve also had practical, on- 
the-job experience in the plant, com- 
mercial and engineering phases of the 
business. So I'm equipped to handle 
new responsibilities all the time. And 
in this fast-growing communications 
field, that means I have more chances 
to keep moving ahead."

The Bowdoin College Debate 
Team, m preparation for the 1959 
60 season, will kick off its program 
Friday, by taking the first of many 
planned trips to colleges in and 
around New England. Our friends 
at Wesleyan will play host to four 
team members who will be at- 
tending a conference and an ex- 
hibition debate between Yale and 
Wesleyan on this year's national 
topic: "Resolved: That Congress 
Should Be Given The Power to 
Reverse Decisions of the Supreme 

Large Tournament Participation 

With what appears to be one 
of its strongest teams in years 
the Debate Council has anticipated 
entering men in twelve intercol 
legiate tournaments. Among these 
will be the St. Anselm's Tourna- 
ment, the M.I.T. Fall and Spring 
Tournaments, the Harvard Tourn- 
ament, the Boston University 
Tournament, the Brooklyn Col- 
lege Tournament, the West Point 
Regionals, the New England For- 
ensic Festival, both the Dartmouth 
Novice and Varsity Debate Tourn 
aments. the Tufts Tournament, 
and the Vermont Tournament. 
With the exceptionally large turn 

out this fall, the increased num- 
ber of tournaments will provide 
ample opportunity for all "men to 
see intercollegiate competition and 
hopefully to taste the fruits of vic- 

Exhibition Debates 

In expanding the breadth of its 
program, the Debate Council has 
planned to perpetuate one func- 
tion and add another to its list of 
activities. The activity to be con- 
tinued is the Spring Tour which, 
taken for the first time last year, 
met with such tremendous success. 
A careful itinerary will be map- 
ped out which will call for a larg- 
er number of appearances at high 
schools and preparatory schools 
in the New York area than were 
made last year. The added func- 
tion will consist of taking one day 
trips to perform exhibition debates 
at schools within a hundred mile 
radius of Bowdoin. 

With a large number of new 
men, in addition to those return- 
ing, the Debate Council is looking 
forward tp compiling a record as 
good, if not better than the out- 
standing one turned in by last 
year's team. . . — 

Various Instruments 
Go To Smithsonian 
From Cleveland Lab 

A distilling flask, two "boti 
less bottom" jars, an iron ketl 
and the core of an electro-magnfci 
are among the 14 items fi 
Parker Cleaveland's Bowdoin Col- 
lege chemistry lab of the last cen- 
tury that have been turned over 
to the Smithsonian Institution in 
Washington. They are to be used 
for display purposes in the De 
partment of Science and Technol- 
ogy at Smithsonian. 

Parker Cleaveland. a dlstsfrl 
relative of President Grover Cleve- 
land and the father of American 
mineralogy, "served as Professor of 
Mathematics. Natural Philosophy, 
Chemistry, and Mineralogy at dif- 
ferent times in his long teaching 
career at Bowdoin from 1803 to 
1858. Among his pupils were Hen 
ry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathan- 
iel Hawthorne, and Franklin 

A vacuum pump — dating from 
1802 — and apparatus for the 
compressing of water are two 
other items that will be put on 
display in 1962 at the National 
Museum. The exhibit will depict 
the history of scientific activities 
in the early colleges and univer- 
sities of the United States. 

New Class Agent i Proposal 
Accepted By Fund Directors 

Reception Held For Class of '63 

Administration OKs 
Bugle Right To 
Solicit Parents 

It appears that the Bowdoin 
Bugle will not be as financially 
handicapped as was thought in last 
week's Orient article on that sub- 
ject. There was a possibility that 
the Bugle's right to solicit ad- 
vertisements and contributions 
from undergraduate parents might 
be quelled by administrative fund- 
seekers. Hoping to receive about 
$1000.00 from the cut generously 
contributing parents of the upper 
three classes; scholarship students 
axcepted, the Bugle this year 
should bring out another excel- 
lent issue. 

Hylander Speaks On 
"Biology And Human 
Progress" Oct 17 

At their annual fall meeting last 
week, the Alumni Fund directors 
acted favorably on a Class of 
1960 proposal to revise the tradi- 
tional policy of appointing class 
agents. For the first time, the se- 
nior class will have a class agent 
during its final year in school. Pre- 
viously the agent was not selected 
until after his class' graduation. 

Last spring it was felt by the 
alumni fund directors and senior 
class officers that the establish- 
ment of closer ties between the 
college and its newest alumni 
would be aided by making the 
appointment known before gradu- 
ation. Al Schretter '59 was ac- 
cordingly announced as class 
agent at the senior banquet spon- 
sored by the Alumni Council in 
late April. 

This fall the Improvement will 
be carried even further by the ap- 
pointment of a class agent pro 
tern in the fall semester of his 
senior year. This appointment will 
be announced within the next few 
weeks. In addition, the fund di- 
rectors voted their approval of a 
second recommendation by the 
class officers to distribute copies 
of the Bowdoin Alumnus to all 

The class officers hope that the 
new plan will better educate the 
graduating students to their du- 
ties and responsibilities when 
they become alumni in June. The 
announcement of the permanent 
class agent will be made annually 
at the senior banquet in the spring 
following his selection by the fund 
directors on the recommendation 
of the class officers. 


Between 55 and 60 persons, in- 
cluding 25 wives, attended the 
Tenth Annual On-Campus Con- 
ference. The conference opened 
Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock with 
a meeting of the Directors of the 
Alumni Fund in the Peucinian 
Room in Sills Hall. Richard S. 
Thayer of the Class of 1928, 
Chairman of the 1959-60 Fund, 

At 5 o'clock a reception in hon- 
or of new Class Agents and Fund 
Directors was held at the Dean's 
House, followed by a dinner at 
the Moulton Union at which 
Agents who led their decade 
groups in last year's Alumni Fund 
received special certificates. They 

were Wallace M. Powers '04, S. 
Sewall Webster '10, Andrew M. 
Rollins '19, 'Samuel A. Ladd Jr. 
"29, Robert M. Cross '45 and 
James "M. Fawcett III '58. 

It was announced that Mr. I .add 
has won the Alumni Fund Cup, 
awarded each year to the Class 
Agent whose class achieves the 
highest performance score in the 
Alumni Fund. He will receive the 
Cup at the Alumni Day luncheon 
in the Sargent Gymnasium on Oc- 
tober 31. 

The first award of the Class of 
1916 Bowl, which goes to the class 
which has made the greatest im- 
provement over its previous year's 
standing in the competition for 
the Alumni Fund Cup. went to 
Irving L. Rich of Portland of the 
Class of 1909. Mr. Rich has serv-

and is also Class Secretary. Dur- 
ing the 1958-59 Fund, as 1909 
raised its 50th Reunion gift of 
nearly $14,000 for an organ for 
Pickard Theater, Mr. Rich set two 
lew records for the class. 31 men, 
or 72% of the class, gave a total 
of $13,789. This performance not 
only established both dollar and 
contributor records for 1909 but 
also brought the class from 42nd 
place in the Fund standings a 
year ago to 2nd place this past 


Dean Kendrick was the main 
speaker at the Friday dinner, 
which was followed by a work 
session in the Moulton Union. Four 
Agents spoke at the work program 
— Alfred E. Schretter '59, Andrew 
M. Rollins '19, E. Farrington Ab-

On Saturday Agents and Direc- 
tors attended a question and ans-

Massachusetts Hall before meet- 
ing with President Coles. Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Coles entertained 
the group at luncheon, following 
which all were guests of the Ath- 
letic Department for the Wesleyan 
game at Whittier Field. 

The 1958-59 Alumni Fund, 
which closed last June, set new 
records in both the total dollars 
contributed and the number of 
contributors. Under the chairman- 
ship of Vincent B. Welch *38 of 
Washington, D. C, 4560 alumni 
and friends of Bowdoin gave a to- 
tal of $195,992.67, nearly $50,000 
higher than the previous year's 
total. There were also about 600 
more contributors than in 1957-58.

Last Thursday evening Bowdoin 
College had the pleasure to pre- 
miere "The World of Carl Sand- 
burg." The presentation adapted 
from the works of the poet had 
the singular good fortune to have 
enlisted the talents of Bette Davis, 
Gary Merrill, and Clark Allen. 
Norman Corwin directed. 

"The World" As Theater 

Sandburg is considered by many 
to be one of America's favorite 
poets. He is best known for his 
Pulitzer Prize winning biography 
of Lincoln and for his volume "The 
People. Yes." The poet has writ- 
ten with equal ease about the 
earliest recollections of the hu 
man mind as he has about the 
more complex functioning of the 
Machine Age. 

In reviewing a performance of 
his works one' is divided as to 
how far one should separate the 
material from the reading. Many 
of the pieces selected were of the 
slightest and most superficial val- 
ue. Because of the limited time 
available Sandburg's longer works 
were understandably not suitable; 
however, some of the exrerpts 
were ill chosen. Why. for example, 
did Corwin choose jokes and witty 
sayings of Lincoln from the bio- 
graphy to close an evening which 
was too often cute, clever, and 

The audience, Thursday, ■ ap 
peared to find Sandburg's com- 
ments on his generation timely and 
stimulating. Some were quite at 
home with the poet's nostalgic 
reminiscences, and the performers 
were accorded several encores. But 
generally Sandburg's world proved 
a deficient one. The material sel- 
dom achieved the distinction of 
being theatrically acceptable even 
though well Dresented. 

"The World of Carl Sandburg" 
was only intermittently satisfying. 

The Program 

"Brother Nothings" was given 
a fin" reading by Miss Davis and 
Merrill. The pair was equallv en-

talents of all three performers 
could have bought more excite- 
ment to the show. Take for ex 
ample the trio's render in 
"Careless Love" which wns one 
of the better moments in part one. 

Bette Davis 

Miss Davis from the beginning 
was dynamic. There was never any 
question as to what has madi 
one of Hollywood's greatest act- 
resses. She was extremely effective 
with "Fog" imaginativels 
in blue lighting. Indeed 
credit must be given Corwin for 
his admirable direction thi 
out. The use of props was hand- 
led well, and so was stage mow 
ment. Miss Davis' rendition of 
'Two Strangers Break' i 
wonderful, an was her ceadi 
"Marintha W i 1 m i n g ' s Love 

"The Machine, Yes"

ally effective. We might state thai 
the truly memorable mome nts of 
the second halt em best be ,| -

even she was not consistently t\ 
ease in so folksy a program 

Allen had some fine moments 
with the numbers "Ain' Goln' To 
Study War no mo'" and "Man 
Coin' Roun'." The poem "Bllbea" 
was given one of Merrill's be ( 
readings, but for the pari the 
actor's selections were rilh> i 
serviceable or not served well

"TheyAll Want to Plav Hamlel " 
And very compelling indeed w.-s 
Miss Davis' reading of "Elil

tion was complete.

Orientation Chairmen 

The Orientation Committee of the Student Council haa 
recently adopted a policy of meeting once a week with the 
Pledge Kinga of the various houses. Aa we understand it. the 
purpose of these sessions is for the exchange of programs and 
for the freshmen to air their gripes. We are in firm disagree- 
ment with this policy for two reasons. First, we cannot help 
but view this, with some degree of alarm, as a move in the di- 
rection of a "centralized" control of Orientation. We definite- 
ly feel that, save the establishment of outside bounds, the pat- 
tern of an orientation program is strictly the province of the 
individual house. The second objection we should like to raise 
is that this policy will tend to circumvent the authority of the 
house Orientation Chairman. No chairman of any activity or 
endeavor can hope to maintain any effective control if dis- 
satisfied subordinates may go over his head without his knowl- 
edge. This is particularly true of the orientation chairman who 
naturally faces a tendency towards resentment on the part of 
freshmen and must therefore maintain rather firm control over 
the situation. 

However we do admit that an avenue of redress should be 
open to the freshman if he is being mistreated by his house. 
The problem lies in providing such an avenue of redreas with- 
out undermining the position of the house orientation chairman. 
We believe this end may be attained by allowing the Ptegee 
King to appear, before the committee, but only under the fol- 
lowing conditions: I ) Before the Pledge King is heard he must 
demonstrate that he has sought redress through channels within 
his house, i.e. his Big Brother, Faculty Advisor etc.; 2) The 
House Orientation Chairman must also be heard at the same 
time; and 3) The meeting shall be cloeed. 

Under this proposal, a freshman who felt mistreated 
would first consult with his own house, and then if the problem 
isn't solved he may seek redress through the Student Orienta- 
tion Committee. This would tend to keep orientation prob- 
lems within the confines of the house concerned which ia 
where they belong. This ia also the purpose in having the 
meeting cloaed. The Orientation Chairman must also be pres- 
ent in order to present his side of the torturous tale of miseries 
and wrongs suffered in the furtherest sound-proof corner of 
the cellar.

Just four more walking days,

friendly campus squirrels have 
been noted in several of the re- 
cent swimming courses. Three of 
them will now be able to graduate 
having passed one of Boivdoin's 
more strenuous requirements. This 
foresight on their part should not 
be ignored by the thinking mem 
bers of the college. Squirrels have 
all. kinds of common sense. At 
least they stav in their trees when 
it rains, whleh is more than can be 
said for the hoards trudging off 
to their eight o'clorks. Squirrels 
collect nuts for hard winters and

Bowdoin College, WBOR: 91.1 on 
all FM tuners, will give to their 
listeners a very "professional" 
broadcasting season. Reaching both 
the school campus and the im- 
mediate Maine area with the lat- 
est in excellent music, news, and 
sports, the Bowdoin radio station 
transmits from 1:00 in the after- 
noon until 12:30 In the morninqr. 
From 1:00 to 5:00 popular hit 
tunes are spun on the turn tables 
.bv such campus DJ's as Marty 
Thumin. Howard Hall. Richard 
Ladd. and John Feenev. Between 
5:00 and 8:00 classical music is 
the thing, with experts Charles 
Revelos, Glenn Richards. Wayne 
Smith, and Peter Sheldon pre- 
senting. Listen at 8:45 for events 
of special interest like Citizen's 
Council Forum on Sunday; and 
at 9:00 hear variations in music. 
Mood music shows from 10:00 'til 
12:30 feature music to studv and

To those of left here, this

watching ten city rise in front of 
the Psi U house. With banners 
flying and canteens (filled with 
water of all things) clanking a 
troop of Boy Scouts made encamp- 
ment on the mall Saturday. (Ap- 
parently to the town father's 
minds the grass removal done by 
Boy Scouts is of a different na- 
ture thnn that done by fraternity 
groups: no policemen told them 
to leave. They wouldn't dare.) 
Here thev dug in for a night with 
nature. The sense of raw prime- 
valness about the Bowdoin cam- 
pus was somewhat dimmed by the 
fact that this was the warmest 
evening of the Fall so fax. On the 
morrow, with a grace that would 
have delighted a former Bowdoin 
grad, thev "(folded) their tents, 
like the Arabs, and as silently 
(stole) away." I think that it 
should be noted here that many 
so called "soft" students have 
roughed it on the very same spot 
on colder davs without benefit of 
shelter. I-ast Ivy immediately leaps 
to mind. 

No one will argue that "The 
World of Carl Sandburg" wasn't 
well thought out and acted. It was 
a very entertaining two hours. The 
college owes Bette Davis and Gary 
Merrill sincere thanks for the aid 
their benefit performance has given 
the Masque and Gown. The only 
quarrel I would have is with some 
of the student Interpretation. This 
is the idea that all of the sayings 
of Carl Sandburg are quite pro- 
found. They aren't so profound 
as they are clever. The reason we 
assign the term profundity to them 
is a form of self conceit. These 
little aphorisms of Sandburg often 
say just what we have thought be- 
fore, but in much better words. 
Well now, if he has merely given 
voice to what we have half way 
known, he must be profound. Tt is 
sort of a self-pat on the back that 
a noted poet and biographer 
agrees with us. This is not an at- 
tempt on my part to depreciate a 
fine piece of entertainment, only 
to define its limits. If you, want 
to see a performance that will 
tickle your profundities attend 
Shakespeare's The Tempest to- 
night at the State Theater in Port- 
land. Besides watching the Strat- 
ford Players in action it is a grace- 
ful way out of the house meeting

by BUI Page 

One of the many cults which 
seem to dominate American edu- 
cation today is the cult of the 
well-rounded man. "Many of the 
students here at Bowdoin seem to 
accept without question the idea 
that the primary goal of a lib- 
eral arts education is to enable 
them to become well-rounded men. 
But this ideal of well-roundedness, 
which is so firmly rooted in the 
minds of our college students, 
sounds to me dangerously like a 
more sophisticated version of the 
ideal of "averageness." which has 
such a pernicious hold upon the 
minds of our high school students. 
With all the shouting going on 
about mediocrity in our schools, 
it seems to me well nigh incred- 
ible that the cult of well-rounded- 
ness which first produced this 
mediocrity should still be in full 
bloom. The cult of "adjustment" 
propounded by John Dewey and 
the progressive educationists has 
received a thorough drubbing at 
the hands of everyone from the 
highest colleee president to the- 
lowest platitude-spouting high 
school valedictorian— and yet the 
cult of well roundedness. which is 
but a subtle offshoot of the ad- 
justment cult, has escaped virtual- 
ly unscathed. 

Tne Implications of 
Well -Roundedness 

The term "Well rounded man" 
has unpleasant connotations. The 
well-rounded man would by defin- 
ition seem to be a finished product: 
he has attained complete self-ful- 
fillment, he has reached the aoex 
of his development, and conse 
ouentlv he has no place to go but 
downhill. He is nothing bu,t a di- 
lettante: he has dabbed in sociol- 
ogy, toved with chemistry, gotten 
a smattering of French, and taken 
a whiff of philosophy. He under- 
stands, annreciates, and sympa- 
thizes with the conflicting ideas 
of various thinkers, and c»n gush 
enthusiastically about their re 
snective orofunditi»s. He knows 
how to balance off two oonosing 
arguments against each other, ap- 
preciating the good points of each 
so much that he is often incanahle 
of taking a stand. Frequently he 
is so dazzled bv the complexity of 
the nroblem that he cannot make 
un his mind: he shrinks from self- 
commitment, degenerates into 
wishv-washy indecisiveneas. and 
becomes a sort of academic Char- 
lie Brown. 

Or. if he Is not thus reduced to 
grovelling Ineffectiveness .he is 
apt to become so puffed up with 
his own well rounded ptsso of the 
nature of things that he will hap- 

pily sink into a state of smug 
complacency and self-content- 
ment. Thus he will vegetate, this 
spherical hero, like a happy grape- 
fruit or a ruminating cow. Have 
you ever seen anything more well- 
rounded than a grapefruit? But 
who wants to be a grapefruit? 
The grapefruit is fully developed, 
there is no morg room for growth; 
and, like all things which cease 
to grow, it can do nothing but 
stagnate and rots. The stagnation, 
intellectual and otherwise, which 
is evident on this campus, while 
not directly attributable to the 
ideal of well-roundedness. is cer- 
tainly not improved by it. 

Versus Greatness 

You wHl find that some of the 
greatest men in history were the 
least well rounded: by common, 
everyday standards, many of them 
were fanatics, if not positively in- 
sane. Genius, which frequently 
contains a smattering of what we 
are pleased to call insanity, is sel- 
dom found in well-rounded men; 
and if well roundedness is imposed 
UDon a genius, it may very well 
destroy that very element in his 
character which makes him a 
genius. Consider such a person as 
Jesus of Nazareth: can you imag- 
ine what would have happened to 
him if he had had the misfor- 
tune to attend Bowdoin? His 
noble ideals would have been rip- 
ped to shreds by the campus cyn 
ics: his Sermon on the Mount 
would have been criticized as be- 
ing sentimental, naive, and other- 
worldly; and his attack* on the 
Pharisees would have been de- 
plored by the more fastidious 
among us as being In extremely 
bad taste. If his critics had had 
the desired effect on him. he 
would have become frustrated and 
disillusioned: stripped of the 
ideals which made him great, he 
would have rotted here— and thus' 
another great soul would have 
been quashed in the cradle. 

No. the goal of education should 
not be to produce well rounded- 
ness, which in turn revolves about 
tl.e not-so-golden mean of the 
"average": the goal of education 
should be to produce great men. 
And it can best do this by seek- 
ing out and developing each stu 
dent's own particular genius and 
capacity for greatness as fully as 
possible — even at the expense of 
well-roundedness. Greatness is 
produced, not by men who absorb 
everything indiscriminately like a 
fat sponge, but by men who im- 
patiently slice through the great, 
mass of irrelevant trash and speed 
to their goal like an arrow.

By Jack Rice 

To any of you freshmen who 
think that colleges don't mean 
business, take note of this: 

Amherst has again gone on the 
"kick" of upping scholastic stan- 
dards. Twelve members of the 
class of 1960 and 1961 have been 
granted a one-year leave of ab- 
sence because their "academic ac- 
complishment never seemed to 
match their academic promise." 
As shocking as this new plan may 
seem to us, it came as no surprise 
to the twelve men involved. Last 
year, the sophomore and junior 
records were reviewed, and teach- 
ers and members of the Adminis- 
tration were asked to determine 
which members of the respective 
classes were underachieving. The 
final list resulted in fifty-one can- 
didates for dismissal. Each of the 
students was individually warned 
by the Dean. Some were able to 
mend their ways, others were 
found ineligible for the blacklist, 
while several men were placed on 
a semester's probation, leaving the 
final twelve to receive the shap- 
ing-up period. 

Dean Porter's comment on the 
controversy was: "Administrators 
at other schools are very much 
interested in the outcome of this 
program . . . (and) expect similar 
programs to become more common 
as the pressure for admission to 
colleges increases." 


I surely wish that somebody 
would for once write something 
complimentary about the fraterni- 
ty system, since fraternities, next 
to juvenile delinquency, rate sec- 
ond on the public's hate list. 

It seems that Hamilton College 
had an unfortunate experience 
with hazing. A freshman was cor- 
nered by a greater portion of the 
student body at a morning cha- 
pel, and the results were some- 
thing that all witnesses- to the in- 
cident would rather forget. Be- 
cause of this, a student who must 
be definitely anti-fraternity wrote 
a long letter to the editor of its 
student publication denouncing 
the basic for which a fraternity 
exists. In one paragraph of this 
self-appointed critic's letter, he 
implies that fraternities areUetre- 
mental to school and class spirit 
and that freshmen should be 
strictly left alone to mingle and to 
impart their loyalty to each other 
rather than to the fraternity. Now, 
in the very next paragraph, the 
writer entirely contradicts himself 
by saying that freshmen should 
not be ignored. 

Because of just one very unfor- 
tunate experience, the Hamilton 
Spectator has printed a letter to 
the editor plus an editorial also 
strongly criticizing the. present 
fraternity system. It's too bad that 
some people are so narrow that 
they want to destroy a whole 
mode of fraternity life just be- 
cause of a few trouble-makers 
who could be found in any crowd. 

We have heard of a Mount Holy- 
oke sophomore named Ann whose 
preparations for a momentous 
scientific event proved more frus- 
trating than one should have to 
bear. Getting ready for an an 
ticipated solar eclipse last Friday, 
Ann, fearing the result of watch- 
ing it with naked eye, and heed- 
ing her thoughtful administration's 
advice against such doings, decided 
that she would, and we quote 
result obtained by holding a light- 
ed match to them was eloquently 

described to us as "POOF." Im- 
mediate remedial action seems to 
have been taken, for the account 
we have goes on to say that. "Her 
red and black cat eye glasses had 
disappeared, and the foam from 
the fire extinguisher . . . was de- 
scending on the coffee table . . ." 
And after all this, there was no 

All About Girls 

The Connecticut Dally Campus 
began a series on the American 
Girl. The insight of the author is 
uncanny and quite thought-pro- 
voking. Listed below are a few of 
the uncensored perts observed by 
this man-about-town. 

First, he describes the object of 
his analyses as "clearly not a boy." 
"Girls" over the age of 35 are dis- 
gusting, and are excluded from 
the research entirely. Thus, a 
girl, then, is any young female 
between the ages of 16 and 25. She 
is charming, single (though not 
always single, but the research is 
confined to single girls - both on 
and off college campi) and is very 
interested in men. She does not 
know of the existence of "boys" 
but finds the word "woman" al- 
most dirty. 

The article proceeds to expound 
on the females natural urges, list- 
ing "the capture of a man pref- 
erably a mailable one" first, with 
"retaining her youth at all costs" 
running a close second. The rate 
of last-minute flushes for the 
Bowdoin-Wesleyan football game 
makes me wonder about the for- 
mer deduction, but nevertheless. . . 

"Mothers of little girls like to 
pre-condition (pre-frustrate) their 
daughters by insisting on party- 
going, dances and even movies 
with little boys. It is so 'cute.' It 
is also more than a little perverse. 
But boys are not — at age 12 or 
thereabouts — interested in little 
girls. They usually prefer hop- 
toads, who are — at least — do- 

Here ends the first installment 
of the definition of girls, plus their 
childhood neuroses which ulti- 
mately condition them for their 
primary purpose in life, "to have 
a male . companion "of some sort, 
or die of mortification."

No Time For Vacation 

We find the Student Council decision to cancel its meet- 
ing this week unless there was violent objection to the new 
orientation rules an alarming sign. The Council has work on 
the blotter which should be cleared up as soon as possible. 
Among other things, the Committee on Student Life and on 
Student Curriculum tthould be chosen immediately. We are 
particularly optimistic of what the Student Life Committee can 
accomplish and regret this unnecessary delay in its selection. 

If the Council is to survive and live up to the future which 
was envisioned last spring, there must be an active membership 
present at meetings and unwilling to cut corners. These twen- 
ty-six men must recapture the enthusiasm which, characterized 
the planners of the Council's new constitution. Without this 
enthusiasm we cannot help but foresee this experiment ending 
in failure. 

It is not our intention to ridicule a newly-formed organi- 
zation which is still acquiring its "walking lege." We aannot 
stand uy, however, and watch the Council jeopardise its future 
by carelessness in these crucial beginning weeks. Let U* hope 
they do find it advisable to have a meeting Thursday night aad 
that their "legs" will be sufficiently strong by than aa carry the 
group in the right direction.

White Spots Amherst 3 TD's Before 

Closing Gap,— Succumbi ng 28 to T2 

The White football statu* ha* definitely displayed a marhed 
improvement over former teams who went winless season after T~i J -f~"W». D ««.*>*• QQ f\ 

season. With a team showing promise and proving its capabili- ±* lOSfl LKj\JOT\ DT€W€T iJif—U 
ties as it has in the three previous contests, perhaps we should 
now whole-heartedly support it to the fullest. Home game at- 
tendance has been inspiring, but Bowdoin sponsorship at the 
Tufts and Amherst games has been depressing. Students do 
not go simply because they show outright apathy to their grid 
team, or there would be little enthusiasm at even the home 
games. Many would have desired to have gone, but were un- 
able to merely because they could not forfeit the cuts of Satur- 
day morning classes. 

And yet, prior to last year, the administration actually ex- 
cused from classes those students who attended our away games 
with other Maine Conference teams. Statistics- wise, we can 
easily see the reason why the policy was abolished by simply 
viewing our football record from '55 on: twenty-five losses 
against only two wins I . 

There is, however, a vital need for the old system to be re- 
instituted with one very big revision : to include all away games. 
Perhaps if we had more students traveling with the team, not 
only Bates, but also to Colby, Maine, and many other schools 
in the Boston and Amherst area, we would score more than just 
a moral victory away from home I There is great need to ex- 
cuse students for the Maine Conference games since all football 
areas in the state cannot be reached in less than two hours travel- 
ing time. Likewise, the Boston area can hardly be within reach 
in the same time. 

Still, many teams in the Midwest and Southwest are spon- 
sored under the same past system with even bigger distances 
to travel just to cheer their teams on. But now that football 
spirit, however small, has been rejuvenated, we could certainly 
re-institute the past cut policy for other purposes than merely 
"beating Mass. Hall at its own game," as the front office sus- 
pects I

The Bowdoin Freshman football 
team opened the 1959 season with 
an Impressive 39-C victory over 
Brewster Academy last Friday. 
Doing the scoring for the Cubs 
were John Milo with three touch- 
downs, Joe McKane with two, and 
Bob Sweeney with one, while the 
lone Brewster score was by Ron 

For an opening game, the squad 
appeared particularly alert against 
the visitors, giving them very little 
yardage. The heavier and harder 
rushing Bowdoin line was instru- 
mental in containing the Brewster 
backfield- The home team's back- 
field looked very sharp against 
the lighter invaders as it continu- 
ally was able to make the vital 
first-down yardage. Instrumental 
in most of the scoring drives for 
the Cubs was the fast and decep- 
tive backfield which could not be 

Bowdoin Tallies Early 
Brewster won the toss and elect- 
ed to receive the opening kickoff. 
They were able to move the ball 
to their 45 but then the Bowdoin 
line held, and the visitors were 
forced to punt. With third down 
and five to go for the home club, 
quarterback Bruce Parker com- 
pleted a pass to the Brewster 45 
for a first down. Three plays 
later, McKane broke loose over 
tackle and raced the 36 yards for 
Bowdoin's first tally. Two more 
points were added with Parker 
passing to fullback Sweeney for 
the extra points. 

Parker's kickoff was run back 
to the Brewster 32, but the power- 
ful defensive line was again able 
to stop the New Hampshire club 
and force them to punt. Bowdoin 
took possession on their own, 20 
and again began to churn upfleld. 
Finally, though, they are forced 
to punt and Brewster takes posses- 
sion on their 43. Good line play 
by John LaCasse and Larry Hick- 
ey forces Brewster to pass, and it 
is intercepted by Bob Ford in the 
secondary and is returned to the 
visitor's 47. On the first play, 
Milo shakes loose from the Brew- 
stermen and streaks for his first 
tally of the day on a 47-yard jaunt. 
The pass for the extra point is 
complete and Bowdoin leads 14-0. 
Immediately after the kickoff the 
quarter ends with Brewstef in pos- 
session on their 35. 

Temporarily the Brewster team 
shows some offensive strength as 
they roll up two first downs, but 
they are then halted oa the Bow- 
doin 34 where the home team 
takes over; Sueessive runs by 
Sweeney, Gary Yamashita, and 
Milo are enough for a first down 
on the 45, where a double reverse 
springs Milo again free to make 
the score 20-0 in favor of Bow- 
doin, the attempted kick being 
wide of its mark. 

Milo Scores Third 
Brewster takes possession on 
their 34 but is immediately forced 
to punt. The Bowdoin safetyman

touches the punt and finally re- 
covers it on the 14-yard line. Milo 
and Yamashita combine for a first 
down on the 26, with fullback 
Mike Altaian adding five more on 
the next play. A short pass from 
Parker to Milo connected on the 
35. and the speedster streaked for 
the sidelines in his third scoring 
run of the game. A key block by 
Altaian on the Brewster 40 sprung 
Milo free for his score. Again the 
kick is wide, and the Cubs lead 
26-0 as the half ends moments 

The Cubs began the second half 
In possession on their 39, and from 
there they worked their way to 
the Brewster 10 with fullback 
Sweeney eating up most of the 
yardage. On second down, Park- 
er passed to Sweeney in the end- 
zone to make it 32-0. The kick 
by Milo added an additional point. 

With the Bowdoin defensive sec- 
ond team In, the invaders drive 
for their first touchdown. Kelll-

middle to the Bowdoin 19, where 
the first string is again put in. ,

An onsides kick was recovered 
on the Bowdoin 45, and she again

to Milo, the Bowdoinmen were 
able to move to the 10. Parker 
again hit his mark, this time to 
McKane, for the final score to 
make it 39-6. The third quarter

76-65. The other competing schools 
were Amherst, M.I.T., Dartmouth,

At the start of the races, at 
tenAM, there were light breezes 
only. But, by noon, they had 
built up to a steady wind. In 
Class A, Charles Emerson, with 
John Payson as crew, placed second 
with 35 points behind Tufts and 
the School of Sailing Club, who. 
were tied for first with 36. In 
Class B, William Chapman and

Bowdoin appeared to spot Am- 
herst three touchdowns before the 
Polar Bears launched their own 
vain offense. Amherst took the 
offensive in the first quarter and 
scored two quick touchdowns. The 
first came only eight plays after 
the opening kick-off as the Lord 
Jeff's marched 67 yards. Amherst 
scored on a keeper play from the 
eight yard line, by Bob Leach. 
The second came on a 21 yard run 
by half-back Alan Deaett. Leach 
passed to Steve Van Nort for the 
first conversion, and Van Nort 
kicked the second. The first period 
ended with the Polar Bears behind 
15-0. Bowdoin's lack of offense 
was due to the fact that Amherst 
was able to successfully stop our 
two big ground gainers, Bob 
Hawkes and Ted Gardner. 

The White's offense then began 
to pick up when Coach Cory sent 
Jack Condon In as quarterback. 
HoweVer an intercepted Condon 
pass set up Amherst's third T.D. 
as half-back Bill Vickers ran the 
interception 31 yards to the Bow- 
doin 23 yard line. After a couple 
of unsuccessful runs, Amherst's 
Leach took to the air for three 
short gains, and then Van Nort 
plunged over for the touchdown. 

After this score .the Bowdoin 
second team with Condon at quar- 
terback took the offensive. Bow- 
doin now displayed an offense fea- 
turing an aerial attack. The Polar 
Bears marched 75 yards for their 
first tally. Sophomore Danny Al- 
vino and Jackie Roberts carried 
the ball well and picked up much 
of the yardage, but the big gains 
came on Condon's passing. He 
passed a 16 yarder to Roberts and 
then a 15 yard personal foul put 
Bowdoin on Amherst's 15 yard 
line. Bob Kennedy picked up four 
on the ground. With the ball on 
the 11 yard line the ground of- 
fense suddenly stalled. Condon 
then passed to Widmer for the 

The Polar Bear's second tally 
was set up by Bob Neeulmm's re- 
covery of a Lord Jeff fumble on 
their own 45. Again the sopho- 
more members of the squad got 
together for the tally. It took 
11 plays to go the 45 yards to 
pay dirt. Alvino, Panteleakos, and 
Robarts handled the ground game 
and Condon managed the aerial 
work. On one combination he 
pitched out to Widmer for 10 
yards, and again passed to Dave 
Barron, at end, for 12 yards and 
a first down on the Amherst three 
yard line. Once more the running 
attack was stopped, so Condon 
again passed to Widmer for lb* 

The second half was pretty 
much of a standstill, with both 
teams displaying strong defenses, 
until the fourth period when Am- 
herst again Began to mqye. Farina 
tore up the middle for a 48 yard 
gain. Farina continued to extend 
the drive as he received a pass 
from Van Nurt for five yards. 
Three plays later Van Nort broke 
off tackle for the touchdown. 

Part of Amherst's success was 
due to the fact that Ted Gardner 
wati injured on the first time he 
carried the ball and was sidelined 
until the second half. A hearten- 
ing note on the game came from 
the very inspiring play of the 
sophomores. Jack Robarts and 
Danny Alvino in the backfield, 
Jack Adams and Dave Barron at 
ends, and Dave Fernald and Jim 
Cunningham in the line, showed 
up well as the depth that Bowdoin 
needs this year and as material 
for next year. Bowdoin showed 
good offensive and defensive play, 
but the offense came a little too 
late for any real effectiveness. 
This game although it ended in 
defeat displayed what Bowdoin 
can do against a strong team and 
with an earlier offensive start, the 
remainder of the season looks 
promising, since Amherst was one 
of the toughest teams the Polar 
Bears will have to meet.

The cold air and drizzle, along with 
the atrocious condition of the 
Brunswick Golf Course which was 
under an inch of water because of 
the two day rainfall, caused the 
times to be slower than expected. 
The inclement weather also dras- 
tically curtailed attendance at the 
meet — • there were five spectators 
present; Coach Frank Sabastean-

unidentified track enthusiast! 

For the flrst couple of miles, 
the runners were fairly well 
bunched up, giving the appear- 

ance that everyone was trying to 
hide behind everyone else, for 
shelter against the relentless driz- 
zle and frosty air. However, with 
one and half miles remaining, the

by assuming the flrst five positions 
which they maintained for the rest 
of the gruelling course.

defensive lack of strength and for 
the lapse of the running game

good for the rebuilding Williams

ROTC Department Characterized By New 
Look This Year; Pride Is Emphasized 

By Stevens W. HHyard 
It has become apparent that 
there is a "new look" which char- 
acterizes the ROTC Department 
This fact was made obvious in Col- 
onel Ryan's address at the presen 
tatlon of Awards ceremony two 
weeks ago, in the Pickard Theater. 
Those who have been to drill, im- 
mediately became aware of a new 
snap in the commands, a new hus- 
tle in obeying orders, and a here- 
tofore unknown pride in being a 

This "new look" has been caused 
by several policy changes within 
the department itself; changes 
have been made with the specific 
idea of preparing men better for 
summer camp, and the period of 
active duty afterwards. The pur- 
pose of the program is to develop 
in each cadet the leadership need- 
ed for influencing and directing 
people to an assigned goal in such 
a way as to command their obe- 
dience, confidence, respect, and 
loyal cooperation. 

.New Officers 

The present interest generated 
within and by the department is 
due in arge measure to new off! 
cers. Lt. Colonel Edward A. Ryan 
took over as professor of Military 
Science and Tactics, replacing Lt. 
Col. Lewis P. McCuller, who has 
been assigned to Army duty in 

Col. Ryan, a native of Boston, 
came to Bowdoin from Fort Sill, 
Oklahoma, where he was executive 
officer of the department of com- 
munications and electronics at the 
Army Artillery and Missile School. 
A World War II veteran, he holds 
the Bronze Star medal and five 
battle stars for European Theater 
campaigns. He served in Germany 
with the 629th Tank Destroyer 
Battalion and later with the 75th 
Infantry Division. 

Major Duncan D. Core has been 

by Benoits on a commutation basis 
as no expense to the student. 
At the present time the Supply 
Office is developing a "Bowdoin 
patch" to be worn on the right 
shoulder. It is to be a white polar 
bear's head on a black background. 
New also is the promotion of cad-, 
ets to the enlisted ranks of cor- 
porals and pfe's, along with the 
wearing of the accompanying chev- 
rons. The third innovation is that 
of Retreat at the end of the drill 

This writer finds it appropriate 
that on the beginning of the tenth 
year of the Bowdoin ROTC unit, 
a revaluation of the program 
was made and the necessary im- 
provements affected. This fact 
promises that this year will be a 
good one for the ROTC depart- 
ment and all the cadets partici- 
pating in it. 

One feature of the new look in R.O.T.C. is the g reen uniforms, here proudly worn by Company A dur- 
ing last week's drill. Cadet Oapt. Millar is company commander, with Dexter Bucklin, guidon bearer 
out front. 

named Assistant Professor of Mili- 
tary Science and Tactics. A na- 
tive of Henderson, Ky., and a 
graduate of West Point, his fifteen 
years in the army include service 
during World War II and the 
Korean conflict, for which he re- 
ceived the Bronze Star. From 
1951 to 1953 he was an instructor 
at the Armor School at Fort 
Knox, Ky.; during the past three 
years he has been stationed in 
Fulda. Germany, with the 14th 
Armored Cavalry. 

Capt. Robert M. Garrison, a na- 
tive of Westfleld, New Jersey, has 
been assigned to Bowdoin as an 
instructor. He graduated from 
Norwich University in 1952, was 
active on the football team there 
and has been in the Army since 
graduation. Capt. Garrison was 
graduated from the Ranger and 
Airborne Schools, was stationed 
in Korea with the 7th Infantry 
Division, returning to Fort Ben- 
ning as an instructor after duty 
at Okinawa. He has just complet- 
ed the infantry advance course. 

New Organizational Setup 

The slogan "Let the Cadets do 
it," as voiced by Capt. Leahey, 
characterizes the present opera- 
tional setup. Many innovactions 
have been made in an attempt to 
realistically prepare the cadets for 
their future duties. One of the 
changes is a reduction of the com- 
panies from five to three in num- 
ber. With 280 men in the program 
this allows for near full-strength 
units. The nine man squad ap- 
proaches the size of the eleven 
man squad in summer camp. The 
nine squads in each company ap- 
proach, lacking only a weapons 
squad, an active Army company, 
whereas last year all units were 
at half strength. Capt. Leahey, 

Cadet Commandant, also stated 
that "the cadets are doing this on 
their own." The Cadet staff offi 
cers and Company Commanders 
meet every Wednesday afternoon 
to plan for the following week's 
drill, and criticize the drill of the 
previous week. 

New Look On DrUl Field 
Nowhere has the change in 
spirit and style been more evident 
than on the drill field. The Army's 
green uniforms are a relief both 
to the eye and to the Cadet who 
had to stand at attention all last 
year because the old brown uni- 
forms would not allow them to 
stand any other way. Also the 
uniforms for Military Science III 
and Military Science IV were made

Sixty-Four Undergraduates Received James Bowdoin Honors This Morning

Of Humanistic Influence"

In Achorn Final 

Jules Lerner '63 and Mark Gold- 
Keynoting the 1 8th annual observance of James Bowdoin berg '63 will face the duo of James 

Day was President Lloyd H. Elliot, University of Maine, Orono. 
The speech, that honored 64 Bowdoin undergraduates for aca- 
demic achievement, hit hard at the lack of humanistic influences 8:00 in Smith Auditorium. The 

quartet was chosen from a large 

Rice '62 and Allen Baker '62 in 
the annual Achorn Prize debate 
on Tuesday evening, Nov. 3, at 

in current educational and public policy. 

President Elliot equated knowl- 
edge with the ability to survive 
in the modem world. With this 
knowledge comes responsibility to 
live a "considered life" where 
"consideration cannot be given 
without concern," he said. The 
necessity of producing men who 
will live and work in this manner 
is paramount for in their lives the 
responsibility to our fellow-man 
will be accomplished. 

The reasons behind the absence 
of social scientists and humanists 
from the active, daily planning for 
education and educational policy 
the President gives to the human- 
tats themselves. Through their 
unwillingness to get their "hands

Council Elects 
Committees and 
Reports Rally 

At an hour and a half meeting 
on Monday night, the Student 
Council, with twenty-two mem- 
bers present, considered several 
problems. Jon Brightman. for the 
Orientation Committee stated the 
policy of the O Committee. They 
are: If any fraternity disagrees 
with one of the Committee's de- 
cisions it may appeal to the Com- 
mittee. If it is not satisfied with 
the Committee's new decision, it 
may further appeal to the Student 

Dean Kendrick spoke for a few 
minutes on his idea of the Stu- 
dent Council. He said that the 
Council now takes its functions 
more seriously than it did when 
he first came to Bowdoin. The 
Dean hopes that no Bowdoin men 
will cause any trouble at other 
colleges in the State series, es 
pecially since the responsible col- 
lege has to pay for any damage. 
He also warned against thetys 
that sometimes occur during 
Alumni- Weekend and hoped that 
the fraternities would <y>n«sider 
hiring a policeman for protection. 

No Homecoming Classes 

Several questions were posed to 
the Dean by members of the 
Council. The Dean stated that 
there are no classes on Home- 
comine. and that no excused cuts 
are allowed from classes to at- 
tend extra-curricular \ activities 
except for participants. The ROTC 
Department, however, makes spec- 
ial arrangements. The Dean of 
fered the use of his house for a 
future ^Student Council meeting. 

Fran Fuller will represent the 
Council at the College Commit- 
tee on Religious Affairs meeting 
this Thursday. 

Ted Fuller reported for the 
Rally. He said that the freshmr-n 
will be required to have special 
signs for the rally and game. Pro- 
fessor Geoghegan wili hp the fac- 
ulty speaker at the Colby rally. 
Fuller also requested that the

Lessard Welcomes 
Young Democrats; 

Invites Party Aid 

Young Republican Club 
Organizational Meeting 
To Be Held Thursday 

A welcome into the activities of 
the Democratic Party was given 
to the Bowdoin Young Democrats 
by state party chairman Alton P. 
Lessard last Wednesday night at 
the Moulton Union lounge. 

Mr. Lessard. who also serves as 
state senator from Kennebec Coun- 
ty, was the principle speaker at 
the opening meeting of the locai 
Young Dems. 

He invited students to all Demo- 
cratic functions, including the 
forthcoming -November Issues con- 
vention, suggested several ways in 
which they might aid the party 

There are three ways In which 
a college man can serve, he said, 
researching, fund-raising, and writ- 
ing. Examining the records of the 
many candidates must be done, 
and the candidate for office hasn't 
enough time to do it, he explained. 
And the same is true of fund rais- 

Also, according to Mr. Lessard, 
there arc many opportunities in 
the field of speech, copy, and news 
release writing for an interested 
Young Democrat., 

Mr. Lessard also proposed, as a 
possible Bowdoin Young Democrat 
project, the sponsoring of a 10 or 
15 minute television program — 
for which the planning, writing, 
editing, acting, and fund raising 
would be done by the students. 

In inviting students to the No- 
vember Issues Conference, he ex- 
plained that they and their ideas 
would bp welcomed into the sem- 
inars at which the future platform 
planks are discussed. The confer- 
ence will be held in Augusta on 
November 15. That evening, Sena- 
tor Jack Kennedy will speak at 
a $3.00 a plate fund-raising dinner. 

An organizational meeting of the 
Bowdoin Young Republican Club 
will be held Thursday evening at 
7:30 in the Moulton Union Lounge. 
At that time, officers will be elect 
ed and the newly formed group will 
discuss plans for the coming year. 
The Club will take an active part 
in Republican affairs and aid the 
senior organization next fall dur- 
ing the campaign. Tentative plans 
now include holding a mock na- 
tional convention next semester 
and sending a delegation to the 
Young Republican State Conven- 
tion in the spring. The past Chair- 
man of the Republican Collegiate 
Service Committee will be on hand 
Thursday evening to discuss the 
purposes of the Bowdoin Young 
Republican Club. All students in- 
terested in the Republican Party 
are urged to attend this meeting. 

Last Thursday, twelve students 
traveled to Augusta to hear Sena 
tor Thurston B. Morton. Chairman 
of the Republican Party, speak on 
the future of the Party. Senator 
Morton stressed the necessity of 
college students taking an active 
part in national and state politics, 
since their generation will be most 
affected by governmental policies. 

Dr. Lloyd H. Elliott, president 
of the University of Maine, was 
the featured speaker at the exer- 
cises. He spoke on "Education and 
Public Policy." Assisting at the 
ceremony was the Reverend Rob- 
ert Cummins, formerly Superin- 
tendent of the Universallst Church 
of America. 

The undergraduate response at 
the convocation was given by 
Theodore A. Perry, a senior from 
Waterville. A French major, he 
has been a James Bowdoin Scholar 
for the past two years and was 
elected to Phi Beta Kappa last 

Following the exercises in Pick- 
ard Theater, there was a lunch- 
eon for the scholars and members 
of the faculty In the Moulton Un- 
ion. Professor Herbert R. Brown 
addressed the group, taking as his 
subject: "Bowdoin Schplar Anom- 

This morning's awards were as 
follows: the James Bowdoin Cup 
was awarded to Charles Goddard 
Wing. This cup was given by the 
Alpha Rho Upsilon fraternity to 
the student who in his previous 
college year has won a varsity let- 
ter in active competition and has 
achieved the highest scholastic 
average among the students re- 
ceiving varsity letters. The name 
of the recipient is engraved on the 
cup, and the cup is retained for 
the following year by the college 
group of which the recipient is a 
member. The General Philoon 
Trophy was awarded to Peter 
Adams Anderson. This cup was 
given by Wallace Copeland Phi- 
loon, M. S.. Major General USA 
(retired) of the class of 1905 and 
is to be awarded to the member 
of the Senior Class who has made 
the best record at the ROTC sum- 
mer camp.

Moulton Awarded 
Fulbright Grant 
For Research 

Professor James M. Moulton, 
Acting Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Biology, has been award 
ed a grant to participate in the 
International Educational E x- 
change Program under the Ful 
bright Act. 

Dr. Moulton. whose research con- 
cerning sounds made by marine 
life has received worldwide at- 
tention, will study for nine months, 
beginning next, summer, at the 
University of Queensland in Bris- 
bane. Australia, continuing his re 
search on the acoustical behavior 
of marine animals. He will be on 
leave of absence. 

He plans to record and analyze 
marine sounds with specialized Us 
tening and recording equipment 
which will be used about the reefs 
adjacent to the Capricorn Islands. 
He will work out of the Heron Is- 
land Marine Biological Station, 
which is administered by The 
Great Barrier Reef Committee. 

Up to the present time, all of 
Dr. Moulton's unusual research in 
acoustical biology has been pur- 
sued in waters off the east coast 
of the United States. The Ful 
bright grant will enable him to 
compare extensive data he has ob- 
tained in these waters with data 
from the South Pacific region. 

The underwater sounds of nrir 
ine organisms are of considerable 
interest from the point of view of 
operation* by listening personnel 
of the Navy. They indicate con- 
siderable significance of sound in 
the lives of marine organisms in 
eluding species of commercial Im- 
portance. As a resu)* of Dr Moul 
ton's research, much attention has 
been paid to the possibility of reg- 
ulating the behavior of free fishes, 
particularly schooling kinds, with 
underwater sound. 

George Beebe To Speak 
On "The United Nations 
And Public Opinion" 

Mr. George Beebe, Director of 
the Institute for World Order, will 
speak here tonight in commemor- 
ation of United Nations Week. Mr. 
Beebe will speak on the subject of 
"The United Nations and Public 
Opinion" under the auspices of 
the Bowdoin Political Forum. The 
public is invited to attend, free of 
charge, at the Moulton Union 
Lounge at 8:00 p.m. 

On Friday night, October the 
23rd, the Political Forum, in con- 
nection with WBOR will present 
a panel discussion on the topic, 
"The Khrushchev Ike Inter- 
change." The panel will con- 
sist of Frank Mancinl, Ted Cur- 
tis. Jed Stout, and Dave Smith, 
and Jon MacDonald will moderate. 
This will also be open to the pub- 
lic in the lounge at 8:00 p.m., and 
will be carried live over WBOR at 
that time.

The Masque and Gown has an- 
nounced that it plans a dramatic 
reading in costume of Oscar 
Wilde's The Importance of Being 
Ernest for presentation in Pickard 
Theater in Memorial Hall on 
Thursday. December 10. 

Casting for the production will 
take place during the current 
month and rehearsals will be held

Greason Condemns Hypocrisy 
Of "Gentlemen's Agreements" 

"A fraternity best serves its members and the college by 
providing men of all faiths as well as of all races a chance to 
learn what the world at large hasn't learned — the art of living 
together," said Professor Greason in Mondays chapel talk, at- 
tacking the "gentleman's agreements" which provide for fra- 
ternity discrimination. Opening with a summary of his chapel 
talk five years ago, on October 2, 1954. Professor Greason dis- 
cussed the stand his own fraternity — Phi Gamma Chapter of 
Alpha Chi Rho — at Wesleyan took with regard to the Protes- 
tant Christian religious principles involved in the initiation ritual. 

To Be Rather Than To Seem 

This national, like many others, 
gradually liberalized its policy, in- 
herited from the 18th century, 
with regard to Catholics, and some 
twenty-five years ago Italian and 
Irish names were to be found in 
the membership rolls. Jews were 
finally admitted, if thev subcribed 
to Christian ethics and ideals — 
but "the ritual of initiation was 
so imbibed with Christian sym 
bolism that no self-respecting 
orthodox Jew could possibly un- 
dergo initiation." Five years ago, 
he attended a fraternity meet- 
ing of alumni and students, the 
result of which was the formation 
of a committee that "advocated 
an intense effort to encourage the 
national to modify the ritual. It 
did not advocate secession." How- 
ever, the undergraduates did this 
on their own, were suspended from 
the national for a year, and then 
became disassociated themselves 
from the national, which "pre- 
ferred to continue with an overt 
avowal of no exclusion clauses but 
with a ritual which made exclusion 
of Jews a fact." "In a fine burst 
of undergraduate idealism (the 
chapter) changed its name and is 
now known as the EQV House, 
for Esse Quam Videri — To be 
rather than to seem." 

"Gentlemen's Agreements" 

This story of several generations 
of undergraduates struggling with 
the hypocrisy of their national or- 
ganization and with the hypocrisy 
of some of their alumni is pain- 
fully relevant to Bowdoin. My 
change is not leveled at the two 
houses here on campus which have 
exclusion clauses, for their pre- 
judices are honestly out in the 
open, and furthermore both of 
these chapters have been for some 
time struggling within their na- 
tionals to bring about reform. 
Rather I am indicting those na- 
tional fraternities at Bowdoin 
which practice that hypocritical 
piece of cruelty — the gentlemen's 
agreement. There are. I know for 
a fact, two such houses on cam- 
pus. In view of the composition 
of membership in most of the 
other houses, I would be naive if 
I did not assume there were more.

It's possible, of course, that some 
chapters here express in their 
membership simply their own pre- 
judices and not the prejudices of 
their national. If so, that is an- 
other problem. My concern this 
morning is with those national fra- 
ternities, represented on this cam- 
pus, which profess no exclusion 
clauses but make quite clear to 
undergraduates at conventions and 
through traveling secretaries that 
what is really meant is no Jews, 
or no Negroes, or no Orientals, 
or no some other scapegoat minor- 
ity group. 

"I am concerned about gentle- 
men's agreements because of their 
effect upon the morality of stu-

college, and upon the authority of 
the administration. Let me con-

In The Open 

There are se /eral reference)* in this week's Orient to frater- 
nity discriminatory practices. It is encouraging to see this ques- 
tion brought forth in a rational, intelligent manner. We do de- 
fend, however, the right of fraternities, as private organizations, 
to choose their own members. Nevertheless, we are in dis- 
agreement, both intellectually and morally, with practices that 
rule out a possible member before the man himself is examined. 
We hope to hear more on this problem. 

Frying Pan Or The Fire 

Last week there appeared in this column an editorial cri- 
ticizing the Student Council Orientation Committee for holding 
weekly meeting* with the Pledge Kings. It was strongly felt by 
the Editonai Board that this was a step in the wrong direction 
— a direction of over centralization of the orientation effort. 
Since then the Orientation Committee has been gracious enough 
to send us a letter, which appear* on this page, clarifying their 
position, and we should like to discuss this letter. 

The letter contains five purposes of these meetings which 
we feel are steps towards centralization. The first point is "To 
review the problem* of college orientation." If the Committee 
has to consult freshmen to find these problems, then they must 
be exceedingly ill-informed. We feel that this can be adequately 
handled at the Chairman's meeting, unless, of course, it is a 
fr—Hm.,n grip* session that is desired. The second point i« "To 
discuss scholastic problems and possible ways to obtain assis- 
tance in courses." If this isn't a step toward centralization, then 
what are Big Brothers, Faculty Advisors and House Scholarship 
Committees for) Th* Third point is "To discuss the problems 
of adjustment to college life." Doe* the Committee perhaps 
regard itself as a qualified board of psycologists ? If an adjust- 
ment problem arise*, it is the job of the Big Brothers and Faculty 
Advisors. If it is beyond them, then it is the proper province 
of college officials. The fourth point is "To suggest changes 
in the college orientation program at the onset of Freshman 
Week." Mr. Glover takes an extensive poll of freshmen on 
this matter every year. We feel that he is far more qualified to 
gather and interpret results from two hundred freshmen than 
is the Committee with twelve. The last point is "To discuss 
methods of improving class unity and spirit." We take no ob- 
jection to this worthy ambition; however, we feel that the un- 
dertaking of such a vaat project by a committee of five weeks 
duration is rather presumptuous. 

In short we feel that it i* obvious that these five points are 
steps in the direction of centralization — a charge which the 
committee has not answered in its letter. The Committee has 
flatly denied the possibility of these meetings being gripe ses- 
sions. Are we being offered centralization in place of gripe 
sessions — the frying pan or the fire perhaps? 

t However, the Orient reporter present at the first meetings 

was given the definite impression by the Committee that these 
were to be off-the-record gripe sessions. Furthermore, several 
House Chairmen have indicated to us that they could recall no 
invitation to the original meetings. One Chairman, when ques- 
tioned as to his views on the value of such meetings, stated that 
if nothing else the meeting* showed that the Orientation Com- 
mittee had a purpose. Unless value is derived in addition to 
that received from the chairmen meetings, then we can see no 
reason for their continuation. 

We do. on th* whole, approve ef the way in which the 
Corrsr-ittee ha* carried out it* work. It is only in this one area 
that we would take issue with them. Wa firmly believe that 
orientation it a problem to be handled, within broad limits, by 
the individual house*. We think it somewhat odd — this ban- 
new of the Committee asking Freshmen how they think they 
should be oriented whan they can have no conception ef all that 
is involved.

When the chapel bell* peal for 
an hour and a half you can be 
quite sure that something extra- 
ordinary has occurred. When I 
heard them I assumed one of two 
thing* had happened. One. some- 
one had slept through the morn- 
ing's chapel and now wanted out. 
or two, Bowdoin tnd tromped Wil- 
liams. I am still not too sure 
which was the actual reason a* 
both event* might have taken 
place at the same time. Sort of 
a double awakening However 
the voices over WBOR could not 
be denied. Bowdoin has won an- 
other game, won it well, and 
demonstrated that its past vic- 
tory was no fluke and neither will 
be ft* future one*. 

At the same time as Bowdoin's 
land forces were taking enemy 
territory her naval squadrons were 
sweeping the seas. The sailing 
team brought back two important 
piece* of booty in their sailing 
bags. Locally they won the Maine 
State Championship, and on a 
larger scale the Admiral Hewitt 
Trophy for the Northern New 
England Championship. For many 
yean now the tailing chrb has 
been the winningest group up here. 
Twice in the last five years they 
have been invited to Annapolis 
for the inter-collegiate champion- 
ships run with the big ocean yawls 
and raced well. Bowdoin has 
been New England Champion sev- 
eral times in the last few years. 
This club too often goes unnoticed 
amidst the clamor of the larger 
budget spectator sports. Never 
the less it has been the Bow- 
doin Sailing Team's name which 
has most often showed up in the 
country's newspapers and the 
pages of the sports magazines . . . 
and In the win column! This 
group has done an excellent job 
of public r»l"*ions for the college 
and deserves its support. 


No doubt several of you Invest- 
ed one dollar and seventy-five 
cents fllus whatever the ride cost 
in a cultural trip to the city of 
light thirty miles south of us. 
No doubt too after it was all over 
you felt cheated out of one hun- 
dred and fifteen of those cents. 
After all the performance was no 
better than the average one which 
may be seen at the Cumberland 
for the remainder of that amount. 

The only accomplished actor in 
the whole performance was Pros- 
pro who managed to rise above 
his baggy dress. Ariel, described 
in the play itself by Shakespeare 
as "tricksy," "delicate," "dainty" 
and sylph-like was in this produc- 
tion about as "tricksy." "delicate," 
"dainty," and sylph-like as King 
Kong. Caliban was no more hor- 
rible than a cocker spaniel. Ferd- 
inand as a great lover couldn't 
melt ice with a ten foot match. 
Trinculo and Stephano were fine 
as long as they were stoned and 
enacted a good comic scene. While 
with the exception of Prospero 
everyone else deserved the sack 
these two were the only ones who 
got it. The play was cut drastic- 
ally there apparently being a run 
on sprites and sylphs at the mo- 
ment In the Actor's Guild. As 
the play neared its end it became 
apparent that it wasn't cut nearly 
enough, it was about two hours 
too long, and even a house meet- 
ins: is seldom that. 

It is apparent now that the 
meeting has taken place. Some-

November 5th Sees 
Skating School For 
Starters, Advanced 

A skating school conducted by 
Phipoen Sanborn of the College 
Arena staff and Mrs. John Chap- 
man of Falmouth will be open to 
the public in five classifications 
beginnfog Thursday, November 5, 
Athletic Director Mai Morrell an- 
nounced today. 

Classes for beginners, novices, 
juniors, advanced skaters and la 
dies will be made available for a 
small fee to those interested. 

The course will consist of a first 
semester of 10 weeks instruction 
and a second semester of 10 weeks 
practice and implementation of 
material learned in the first per- 
iod. The purpose is to provide a 
sound basic understanding of skat- 
ing as a foundation on which 
skaters may develop their skill in 
whatever aspect of the art they 
may elect; figures, free-skating or 

Phippen Sanborn has many 
years of skating experience and 
teaches skating at the Arena. For 
the past two years he has assist- 
ed the Skating Club of Brunswick 
by writing and producing an an- 
nual Ice Show. As a pupil of 
Willie Frick of Boston. Sanborn 
has been active in skating since 
the early 1930"s and is now en

hour exam party. The tons of 
blue prints used in Bath for each 
destroyer must be a* nothing to 
the paper work involved in get- 
ting all the hour examc and papers 
as close together as possible. As 
yet the ultimate has not been 
reached, that i* everything due 
at eight in the morning on the 
same day, including all chapel at- 
tendances, but the cohstant effort 
in that direction can not go long 
unrewa r d e d. In one way this has 
its advantages for the student. He 
is enabled to more easily budget 
his time. With this system he 
can put everything off until the 
last minute instead of Just this 
and that. No studying for one 
exams while letting the others 
slide. Not being able to cut only 
half of your classes In a day. Not 
being able to identify the location 
of Hubbard Hall. No student! 

The last few days have shown 
that winter will soon be on us. 
Snow fell early Monday morning 
and the friendly campus squirrels 
are squabbling over every nut. 
Soon the air will be filled with the 
sight of mouldy old bits of coon 
skin and the sound of cracking 
motor blocks. However bear in 
mind that the cold of the game 
always seems to make the party 
after the game lustier.

News From 

Other Colleges 

vjreaaon Speech 

(Continued from page 1) 

their fraternities, some of which 
have gentlemen's agreements — 
the essence of herd thinking and 
common prejudice. The truth, 
frankly, is that such students don't 
know what they think, they have 
no moral identity. On Monday, 
Wednesday and Friday they think 
one way; on Tuesday, Thursday 
and Saturday they think another, 
and the moment they get their 
days mixed up they're in trouble. 
The loss of identity, of self knowl- 
edge, of knowing who you really 
are, is the price of hypocrisy, and 
that is one thing that is wrong 
with the gentlemen's agreement 
in college fraternities. 

"The purpose of a liberal arts 
college is to encourage and further 
free inquiry with the moral as- 
sumption that once a truth has 
been perceived it will be lived, 
that is. that there will be personal 
commitment to the result* of this 
inquiry. A gentlemen's agreement 
discourages free Inquiry, and it 
certainly precludes commitment. 
The gentlemen's agreement is 
antithetical to the true purpose of 
any good liberal arts college — 
and that's the second thing that 
is wrong with it 

"Finally, the gentlemen's agree- 
ment of a national fraternity es- 
tablishes modes of conduct over 
which the college administration 

— responsible for student conduct 

— has no control. When President 
Coles greeted the freshmen at the 
Matriculation Service and assured 
them of the college's warm wel- 
come, each gentlemen's agreement 
in effect gave him the lie. The 
gentlemen's agreement raises the 
Question of whether the president, 
the boards, and the faculty are 
responsible for the principles gov- 
erning this college, or whether cer- 
tain national fraternities are. 
That's the third thing that's wrong 
with gentleman's agreements. 

Trend Tow a rd* Local* 

"Ironically, of course, the na- 
tional fraternities with exclusion 
clauses and gentlemen's agree- 
ments have m effect sealed the 
death warrant for all national fra- 
ternities. At Westeyan there are 
now Ave local chapters whereas 
twenty years ago there were only 
nationals. Amherst, I believe, now 
has six locals. This is the irreversi- 
ble trend at good college*, for 
once nationals invite criticism, it 
is only a matter of time before 
astute students will wonder Just 
what it is the nationals provide in 
exchange for the thousands of dol- 
lars Bowdoin chapters, for ex- 
ample, send off campus each year. 

What Is YOUR Fraternity? 

"But that's another issue. My 
concern this morning, as I have 
said before, is with the hypocrisy 
which some nationals foster. I 
have no objection to social clubs 
as such — In fact I see them not 
only as inevitable but, under cer- 
tain conditions, I see them as edu- 
cationally desirable. Nor In call- 
ing attention to a hypocrisy which 
some of you are practicing do I 
pretend to any moral superiority. 
The administration and the faculty 
will have to decide this year 
whether the college ought to con- 
tinue to receive federal money for 
undergraduate loans — loans re- 
quiring a loyalty oath and our af- 
fidavit when in fact the faculty 
has already voiced Its disapproval 
of these conditions for student 
loans. I know — when you're in 
the wrong we call it hypoaisy 
when we're in the wrong we cali 
it comprimise. Gentlemen — it's 
all hypocrisy, and the fact that 
we're all involved ia it, compli- 
ments of the human situation 
doesn't make it any leas wrong! 

We wish to clarify the purposes 
of the weekly meetings between 
our committee and the fraternity 
pledge kings. Your recent editorial 
suggested the purpose of these ses- 
sions was 'for the exchange of pro- 
grams and to air gripes.' This is 
a misconception, and the author 
does not know the objectives. The 
true purposes of these meetings 
are: (1) to review the problems 
of college orientation. (2) discuss 
the scholastic problems and pos- 
sible ways to obtain assistance in 
courses, (3) discuss the problems 
of adjustment to college life, (4) 
suggest changes in the college 
orientation program at the out 
set of freshmen week. (5) discuss 
methods of improving class unity 
and spirit. These meetings are 
not gripe sessions in any possible 
way, but are constructive meet- 
ings with freshmen representatives 
to discuss the outlined objectives. 
The weekly meetings are held on 
Tuesday evening at 8:15 in Con- 
ference B. Moulton Union. Any in- 
terested student or faculty mem- 
ber is invited to attend, and it is 
hoped that future critical evalua- 
tion will not be made until the in- 
terested person, or persons, have 
attended one of the meetings.

Trip To Germany, 
$500 Offered By 
Goethe House 

A five hundred dollar check and 
a free airplane trip to Germany 
are being offered by Goethe House, 
New York'*- American-German cul- 
tural center, to college or univer- 
sity students in the mid Atlantic 
states for the most "perceptive and 
Original essay" on some phase of 
German life. 

Known as the "1959-1960 Goethe 
House Student Contest," the com- 
petition is open to college seniors 
or graduate students who are Unit- 
ed States citizens and who are 
registered at a college or univer- 
sity in Connecticut. Delaware, 
Washington, D. C, Maine. Mary 
land. Massachusetts, New Hamp- 
shire, New Jersey, New York, 
Pennsylvania. Rhode Island and 

According to Dr. James S. Con- 
ant, President Emeritus of Har- 
vard University and President of 
Goethe House, the purpose of the 
award is to stimulate American 
students to discuss problems con- 
cerned with present day Germany, 
Its historical background, its so- 
cial, economic or cultural achieve- 
ments. The 500 dollar prtee, to 
which the Federal Republic of 
Germany has added a free round- 
trip air passage New York-Ger 
many, is intended to assist in 
creating a broader understanding 
by Americans of modern Germany. 
The offer of a second prize is be- 
ing considered. The cash award is 
to be used for summer travel in 
Europe, including Germany. Goethe 
House will attempt to arrange 
publication of the prize-winning 
essay in a periodical of general 
circulation. Deadline for the sub- 
mission of essays, which must be 
between 3500 and 5000 words in 
length, is February 28. 1960. 

Goethe House, located at 120 
East 56th Street, is an An:: .lean 
German cultural center and libra- 
ry created two years ago by some 
public-spirited Americans. Among 
the founders and* trustees are John 
J. McCloy, General Lucius D. Clay. 
George N. Shuster. Grayson Kirk 
and Erich Warburg. 

The center's nucleus is a 10,000- 
volume library of German books. 
In addition, Goethe House regu- 
larly arranges many lectures, ex 
hibits, concerts, film screenings 
and student discussions. According

by Bill pace 

The President's Report for last 
year makes some rather ominous 
observations concerning fraterni- 
ties, observations which the frat 
ernities themselves would do well 
to pay heed to. 

The President begins by declar- 
ing that "the fraternity must make 
a positive contribution to the de- 
velopment of the student in line 
with the objectives of the College 
itself." This sounds reasonable. Ob- 
viously the College cannot afford 
to permit the fraternities to tear 
down everything that the College 
is trying to build up; if the frater- 
nities pull the students one way 
and the College pulls them the 
other, the students will soon turn 
into a bunch of schizophrenics. 

Fraternities Vs. th* CaEaga 

But da the fraternities contrib- 
ute to the objectives of the col 
lege? I don't think so. And what 
is worse, I greatly fear that the 
President doesn't think so, either. 
The primary aims of Bowdoin fra- 
ternities are social; the primary 
aims of the College are intellec- 
tual: so you have this perennial 
conflict between the fraternities 
and the College, between the em- 
phasis on fun and the emphasis 
on learning. Anyone who doesa't 
think that the primary aims of 
Bowdoin fraternities are social is 
either extremely gullible or singu- 
larly lacking in intelligence. Most 
of our fraternity constitutions con- 
tain many pious mouthings about 
the "noble Ideals" upon which the 
fraternity in question is based — 
"character building," and similar 
drivel. Well, some time between 
the founding of the fraternity and 
the present day, these noble ideals 
managed to get themselves lost in 
the muddle. Nobody joins a Bow- 
doin fraternity today for the pur- 
pose of building up his character. 
Today people join fraternities for 
one basic reason, to have fun. and 
anybody who pretends otherwise is 
either a hypocrite or an arrant 

The Ax W1D Fall 

The President soon warm* to 
his task, and begins to get dan- 
gerously specific: 'Tt is incum- 
bent upon each fraternity to make 
a distinct, positive contribution in 
terms of the primary alms of the 
College ... To the extent that 
negative influences prevail, and 
the basic purposes of the College 
are vitiated by desultory attitudes 
pervading a fraternity, so is ... a 
portion of . . . the instructional 
and scholarship program of the 
College neutralized. Any weakness 
occasioned by the environment 
outside the classroom must be 
eliminated ... In the total task 
of the College, contrary debili- 
tating influences cannot be Ig 
no red." 

This sounds uncomfortably omi- 
nous. Obviously the President is 
not just talking to enjoy his own 
sound waves, and unfortunately 
for us, he is right: not only do 
the fraternities encourage what 
the President quaintly refers to as 
"desultory attitudes" (such as 
apathy, cynicism, and general 
sloth) — they also provide focal 
points of student resistance to the 
Administration, which the Admin- 
istration cannot tolerate.

I would be interested to learn 
Just what sort of "positive con-

to make. It is obvious that he is 
not overjoyed at the cynical, apa- 
thetic, and listless attitude of 
many of the students; but it should 
be equally obvious that we are not 
going to be transformed into eager- 
beavers, gung ho zealots all athirst 
for education overnight. But "any 
weakness occasioned by the en- 
vironment outside the classroom 
must be eliminated." We are thus 
placed tn * bit of a quandary. 

The President's Report fe dear- 
ly a shape-up warning of the first 
order: and I would venture to pre- 
dict, from its dire, foreboding tone, 
that the ax is going to fall in the 
near future. What form the chop- 
ping takes remains to be seen. 

Insurance Company 
Repays College For 
Training Employes 

Bowdoin College will benefit 
from an unusual program which 
helps private colleges replace their 
financial investment in graduates 
who work for Connecticut Gen- 
eral Life Insurance Company. 

Over the years Connecticut 
General has made major gifts to 
aid higher education. Its new pro- 
gram, according to President 
Eraser B. Wiide. has the advant- 
age of brinaine to the attention 
of the public the real nature af 
the financial problems facing priv- 
ate colleges and universities. 

Connecticut General's program, 
Mr. Wilde said, recognises that 
students' fees do not cover the 
full cost of their college studies. 
Typically a college will spend 
$1000 per year for each student 
or a total of $400 for each grad- 
uate beyond what the graduate 
himself has paid for his educa- 
tion. This balance is made up 
from endowment income, thus de- 
priving the college of such in 
come. Connecticut General's pro- 
gram will help restore the income 
from this investment. 

The company's grant, offered 
without restriction as to use. will 
equal the earnings from $4000 at 
an Interest rate of four per cent, 
or $160. It will »o to colleges in 
the name of each graduate who 
is a career employee at the com- 
pany Connecticut General plans 
to make the grant each year for 
as long a* the employee is with 
the company. Any college grad- 
uate, man or woman, who has 
been a salaried employee of the 
company ten or more years is 
considered a career employee. 

In addition to the Drownm of 
direct grant*. Connecticut Gener 
al will match in equal amount 
gifts made by salaried employees 
with at least one year of service. 
The gifts can be made to *nv ac- 
credited privately supported four- 
yaar college or university* of the 
employee's choice. 

Accordin* to the American 
Alumni Council. Connecticut Gen 
era) is the first insurance company 
to institute a matching gift pro- 

In selecting the institutions to 
receive the grants. Mr. Wilde 
said. "We believe our grestest ob- 
ligation l« to the privately sup- 
ported colleges which have no re- 
course to tax monies and must 
look to private donors for sup- 

Bowdoin alumni in whose nam*

Looking for a 'gut' Cal course? 
The U. of Mass. has come up with 
a real winner — parachute jump- 
ing. Last week the college's Sport 
Parachute Club presented a sky- 
diving demonstration to a crowd 
of about 2000 students. Two of the 
more illustrious (or foolhardy) 
members dove from a plane at the 
height of 3000 feet. Each of them 
fell 1000 feet ( which to me Is 1000 
feet too many) before opening 
their chutes. I guess the more 
sadistic element of the audience 
wa* rather disappointed as both 
men landed safely. The whole pro- 
cedure sounds like fun, but give 
me Sabe's Tennis Cal anyday.

Amherst is cracking the whip 
again, and this time it's aimed at 
the freshmen. The House Manage- 
ment Com. seemed to be quite 
disturbed at the amount of dirty 
rushing this year and at Its an- 
nual fall meeting, new rules were 
decided upon to deal with such 
violation*. Now, most of us know 
what constitutes dirty rushing 
(off campus rushing, rushing before 
the designated period begins, etc.) 
and if any fraternity at Bowdoin 
is caught violating the code, it is 
that specific fraternity which is 
penalized. Not so at Amherst — 
there, any freshman Involved in 
such rushing activities "mav be 
placed on social probation and/or 
eliminated from rushing for one 
year. "This seems to me to be an 
extremely harsh punishment — for 
as all-knowing as freshmen think 
they are, the majority don't know 
beans about rushing, at a college 
fraternity; and if an act of dirty 
rushing does occur, it is almost al- 
ways the doings of a fraternity and 
not the involved freshman. 

The Beat Spirit 

One thing you have to say about 
MIT, it has its own original way of 
doing things. Most colleges that 
have a get-acquainted party throw 
a quiet, dignified social affair with 
upperclassmen dressed ivy as Hell 
and snowing the freshmen out of 
their minds with their tweedy 
manners. Well, MIT has added its 
own twist to such a get-acquainted 
gathering, in the form of a Beat- 
nik Dance Party. It will feature 
"swinging records and an abund- 
ant supply of chicks. AH cats are 
requested to bring their own gui- 
tars, bongos and espresso mugs." 
The dress will be quite inconspicu- 
ous with everyone wearing a black 
turtle-neck "beat shirt," which is 
a must. 

Wall. I have no idea how this 
magnanimous social event will 
turn out. but I would like to di- 
rect a few words to the MIT fresh- 
men: "Remember, the first impres- 
sion is not always the lasting one. . 

The Golden Rule 

Do not do unto others as you 
would that they should do unto

COULD IT BE! (>) . . . Perhaps the White will show its 
first winning season since 19?? I All that stands in our way 
is the State Series, and a careful analysis of the other Maine 
Conference teams opens this question to more than mere specu- 
lation . . . and, in fact, bring it into near reality. Statistically, 
we should beat Bates by 32 points, or five touchdowns. Now 
don't snub this as an ephemeral exaggeration! Middlebury beat 
Bates, 14-6; Williams beat Middlebury. 26-8; and our White 
"massacred" Williams, 14-6. We leave the calculus to the 
math majors! So far, that gives us three wins, with Colby and 
Maine yet to contend with. 

Returning to a statistical analysis of Colby, in the light of 
their Trinity game, we arrive at a six point difference between 
Colby and Bowdoin, favoring the Mules, But this figure in- 
cludes Bowdoin's opening loss to Tufts, and does NOT take 
into account the added experience and depth acquired in the 
past three contests. If the Polar Bears are at full strength in 
this Saturday's game, it should prove the mathematical logicians 
in err I 

And there is our winning season, without having to count 
on an upset against the strong Black Bears from the U. of Me. 

Fulura Est Veritas . . . 
Not that we are attempting to boast of our earlier predic- 
tions, but if the readers will look back at the - first issue, they 
will note the following excerpts appearing in this column: 


Class of '62 Provide Strength \ 

"Now that the Bowdoin athletic season has officially been r , / ^ y0/0 |-, r> rriri A mr T>rkll/mO DAS C fk 
initiated for the ensuing year, there may be observed a tremen- oC/CC/^/l 1 tLiAJM JtlUlrJlO D 1 0"l/ 
dous depth of talent in the football squad, originating mainly 
from the freshman ranks of the previous year. With only seven- 
teen lettermen returning this year, the Class of '62 men com- 
prise over half of the present team. The first opportunity that 
the former Cubs seized showed quite markedly their value to an 
improved Bowdoin football team. Such men on the roster as 
Alvino, Bucklin, Panteleakos. Robarts, Saunders, Speliotis, and 
Fernald splendidly filled in the vacated positions of the departed 
starters of last year." 

Readers Digest Asks: 
Is Football Doomed? 

College presidents and football 
coaches are primarily responsible 
for the violations of athlete re 
cruiting rules which are Riving big 
time college football "a sour repu- 
tation." savs Don Faurot, now 
University of Missouri director of 
athletics after years of coaching. 

His views are given in the No- 
vember Readers' Digest in a 
sinned article, "Is College Foot- 
ball Defraying Itself?" condensed 
from the Saturday Evening Post. 

"When a college corrupts an 
athlete by paying him under the 
table," says Faurot, "you can be 
pretty sure that the coach not 
only knows about it, but probably 
instigated it. . . As for college 
presidents, some have been co- 
erced into putting up with dishon 
estly. gome have winked at it, and 
some have been too naive to know 
what is happening. . ." 

Faurot feels it imperative that 
everyone concerned with college 
football acknowledge the abuses 
and take corrective action. 

"First of all." he writes, "edu- 
cators must enforce the rules gov- 
erning college athletics. Simply 
refusing to schedule teams which 
operate outside the rules would 
quickly whip into line thoss col- 
leges which now value winning 
football teams above honesty. . . 

"School administrators must 
make it dear to their coaches that 
they place integrity ahead of vic- 
tory; that no amount of alumni 
pressure after a losing season will 
affect the coach's job. whereas, 
under the-table aid to athletes will 
get him fired. I'm still idealist en- 
ough not to see much difference 
between paying a boy under the 
table to win for you and having 
some gambler pay him to lose." 

try .Louts Schwart* 

Last Friday the White hooters 
trampled a visiting Babson 11, 6 
at Fickard Field, led by Laszlo 
Dudas and Soph. Paul Constantino. 
To illustrate how the Polar Bears 
outclassed the Green — Goalie 
Steve Eller Was called on to make 
only one save in the entire game. 

In the first period Bowdoin com- 
pletely dominated the field, out- 
passing, outdribbling, outheaded, 
and outshooting the Green. The 
White had many shots on the goal 
but had a great deal of trouble 
cashing in on them. 

Again during the second per- 
iod Bowdoin played a steady driv- 
ing game. Then with seven minutes 
left in the half the White caught 
fire. With an assist from Clapp, 
Laszlo Dudas made a perfect head 
shot putting the White in front, 
1-0. Two minutes later the White 
scored again as Paul Constantino 
brought the ball down from mid- 
field faking as he dribbled passed 
the helpless Babson defenders; 
passed from the left in front of 
the Babson goal lust as Patterson 
of Babson came down field to pro- 

tect the attempted goal, and boot- 
ed the ball in for Bowdoin, mak- 
ing the score 2-0. 

After the half Bowdoin con- 
tinued to out play the visitors. 
Then with five and a half minutes 
left, Dudas tallied his second goal 
of the day. Right from the begin 
ning of the fourth quarter, Bow- 
doin constantly had control of the 
ball. At 8:55 of the quarter, Du- 
das again showed his brilliant 
playing prowess by scoring. Then 
with 11:45 left in the quarter, 
Clapp faked through four Babson 
men to make It 5-0: for the White. 
With only twenty five seconds re- 
maining Constantino, who had 
been playing a magnificent game 
throughout, scored the sixth and 
final goal for Bowdoin, as the 
White won their first game of the 
season, and brought their record 
to 10-1.

This Sunday, the Freshman Sail- 
ing Team went down in defeat to 
a strong Tufts team in competi- 
tion for the freshman individual 
championship elimination series. 
The Bowdoin strategy failed, de 
spite conditions for which the Cub 
team was prepared. Two crews 
went to race: first, Charlie Emer- 
son and John Parson would con- 
tend if there were a light breeze. 
Second, if the wind were blowing 
quite briskly then Bill Chapman 
and Bob Page would be selected 
to defend the Little White. As 
the latter condition prevailed, Bill 
Chapman was the choice. The 
boats were "Jumbos" — twelve 
foot sailing skiffs, but handled 
poorly in the heavy breeze. Bill, 
formerly adapted to the faster 
Tech. dinghies, had several poor 
starts and finished the day in

Saunders, Entin 
Spark Bear Win 

The Bowdoin Polar Bears came 
from behind to defeat Williams 
for the first time since 1952. 14-6. 
The White streaked to this vic- 
tory behind a brilliant team effort 
headed by sophomore half back, 
Glenn Saunders, an inexperienced 
and heretofore unpraieed runner, 
who scored both of Bowdoin's 

The first half was featured by a 
series of punts, fumbles, and mis- 
takes in the backfield on beha'f 
of both teams. Williams got its 
offense clicking fairly early but 
Bowdoin's strong defense held the 
Ephmen. Williams belly series 
which up to Saturday had been 
extremely successful was stopped 
practically cold by the Polar Bears 
as a result of careful spotting and 
practice against such an offensive 

The Polar Bears got off to their 
usual slow offensive start. Their 
deepest penetr.ntion came late in 
tlie first quarter when Bowdoin 
marched to the William's 10 yard 
line only to be stopped by a hold- 
ing penalty. Our greatest defen- 
sive problem came on the Wil- 
liam's pitchouu to Bob Kourke 
and Eric Widmer. This attack 
produced a touchdown for the 
Ephmen who drove 71 yards on 
11 plays with quarterback Bruce 
"Grinnell bucking over for the score 
frpm the six inch line. 
1 Bowdoin's first tally In the third 
quarter was set up by a pass In- 
terception by Bob Kennedy at 
midfleld. Ted Gardner, Jack Cum- 
mings, and Bob Kennedy ground 
out the yardage with George En- 
tin throwing only one pass, a 
screened pitch to half back Gard- 
ner for >9 yards. Glenn Saunders 
entered the game with Bowdoin 
on the William's 22 yard line. On 
his first carry be quickly picked 
up six yards oft* tackle. Cummings 
who was seeing his first real ac- 
tion of the season carried the 
ball to the nine yard line on two 
runs. Saunders sliced off tackle 
to give Bowdoin its first score. 
Ted Gardner kicked the extra 
point which put Bowdoin in the 
lead for the remainder of the 

. Saunders then sparked the sec- 
ond Bowdoin touchdown by re- 
turning a punt from the goal line 
to the 36 yard line. This was 
perhaps the Polar Bears finest 
punt return of the season. Bow- 
doin rolled the remaining 60 odd 
yards in thirteen plays with Saun- 
ders carrying the ball on six of 
them. Entin's pass to Jack Ro- 
barts to the Eph's 37 yard line 
was the longest aerial gain as it 
went for 22 yards. Bowdoin ap- 
peared to be stopped by Williams 
when Entin was thrown for a 12 
yard loss to the 26 yard line. He 
Came back effectively as he passed 
to Saunders who scored his second 
T.D. of the afternoon several plays 
later on a buck up the middle 
from the four. Bowdoin then 
.fought off a last ditch offensive at- 
tack in the final minutes when 
Dave Cole who played wef! for a 
full 60 minutes, batted down a 
fourth down Williams pass. 

Saturday's victory was the first 
for Bowdoin at Wiliams' Weston 
Field since 1947. 

For the second straight week 
the depth which Bowdoin had 
been lacking in former seasons has 
really shined. Entin and sopho- 

Otean Saunders

Jack Cummings 

more Dexter Bucklin alternated at 
quarterback. Bucklin In his first 
major participation of the season 
looked very effective. These two 
boys seem to be doing an extreme- 
ly competent job since the loss of 
Jack Condon as a result of an in- 
jury a week ago. Cummings also 
did a fine job particularly -on the 
drive which was culminated\ by 
Bowdoin's first touchdown. Cum- 
mings had been injured since the 
opening day of practice. Sopho- 
more replacements filled in well in 
both the backfield and line which 
gives Bowdoin a heartening out- 
look for the next two seasons as 
well as the rest of this year which, 
promises to improve this years 
current .500 average. Unfortunate- 
ly half back Bob Hawkes received 
a leg injury which could put him 
out of action for at least one or 
more of the coming games. 

This current winning season has 
produced "an enthusiastic response 
from the student body. Bowdoin 
was well represented at the game 
which is also a helpful morale 
booster for the boys on the team. 
With the high morale now present 
among students and players the 
campus is coming out the apathe- 
tic shell which seems to have ex- 
isted in preceding years. This all 
goes to prove what a great part 
a successful atheletic program can 
do for the rest of Bowdoin College 
life. We hope that this year will 
set a precedent for the coming

The sailing team, grateful to 
the College for fixing up the docks 
and grounds of the boathouse, 
celebrated the new innovation last 
weekend by winning two meets 
in an efficiently-run series against 
Colby and then against Dart 

On Saturday. October 17, their 
first sailing meet At home, the 
varsity White sailing team easily 
trounced Colby in moderate winds. 
This victory was considered as the 
Fall Segment of the Maine Cham- 
pionship. However the win was 
merely the accreditor of the In- 
formal Title since the University 
of Maine did not attempt to sail. 
The Black Bears were forced out 
of the race due to lack of practice 
since their sailing facilities were 
not up to par. 

The races were held in team 
style, despite Maine's absence, 
with A and B divisions: each con 
sisting of two skippers from each 
school. Sailine A division for Bow- 
doin were Terry Clark and Com- 
modore Lance Lee. In the B divi- 

sion, the races were divided among 
Charlie Wing, Bruce Burns, and 
Roger Stone. 

The sailing conditions were ex- 
cellent. It was one of those rare 
days when the wind does not shift 
180 degrees in a short while. 

On Sunday October 18, in a 
more difficult meet, the White 
edged Dartmouth to win the Hew- 
ett Trophy. Since St. Michaels and 
Maine failed to show, the meet 
finally began between Dartmouth, 
Middlebury. and Bowdoin. The con 
test, sailed in strong but extreme- 
ly variable winds, was clearly be- 
tween Bowdoin and Dartmouth. 
The deciding factor was probably 
Bowdoin's superior playing of the 
frequent wind shifts. Terry Clark 
and Lance Lee are to be recom- 
mended for placing the team in its 
logical position — first. 

The Bowdoin sailing squad has 
won all but a few of the eight 
matches this fall, and should do 
surprising as expected this spring. 
It looks as if the varsity skippers 
are really shaping up as one of 
the College's best publicity teams. 

.MINUTES, 20-14 

A touchdown pass in the final 
three minutes gave the undefeated 
Phillips Andover football team a 
victory over the Bowdoin Polar 
Cubs last Saturday at the Andover 
Stadium, 20-14. It was Andover's 
fourth straight win, while Bow- 
doin's., present record ts 1-1. Scor- 
ing for the visitors were halfback 
Jack Mik> on a pass from Jack 
Parker and John Ford on a short 
plunge. Milo and Parker also 
teamed up for the extra points. 

High scorer for the powerful 
Royal Blue team was Jim Turchik 
with two touchdowns and a two- 
point conversion for a total of 
fourteen points. The other score 
was tallied by halfback Webb 
Harrison on an 83-yard punt re- 

In the opening quarter the Bow- 
doin White Cubs completely domi- 
nated the play but were able to 
cross into the Andover end zone 
except on one occasion. After 
forcing the home contingent to 
punt, the Bowdoin machine began 
to click. Driving downneld from 
their own forty, the White tallied 
on Fork's drive through the center 
of the line. The extra point try 
failed, and the Bowdoinmen led, 
6-0. Moments later, though, Bow- 
doin was forced to punt, and the 
speedy and elusive Harrison took 
the ball and began his jaunt to 
the goal line. Poor tackling at- 
tempts on the part of Bowdoin al- 
lowed the scatback to break free 
for the score. For the extra point, 
quarterback Mike Bassett passed 
to Turchik to put Andover ahead 

In the second quarter the two 
teams were at a standstill with 
the ball usually near midfleld. No 
more scoring drives originated, and 
at halftime Andover was ahead by 
a narrow 8-6 margin. 

The only scoring done, in the 
third quarter put Andover further 
into the lead as Turchick picked 
up his first touchdown. Begun 
deep in their own territory, the 
home squad's drive culminated In 
a pitchout from Bassett to Tur- 
chick from the Bowdoin seven 
which was successful for the score. 
Though the point try was no good, 
Andover was ahead 14-6. 

Early in the final period, though, 
Bowdoin valiantly fought back and 
was able to knot the score at 14- 
14 before tiring and allowing An- 
dover to push over the winning 
score. A march from the Andover 
35 was capped by an 11-yard pass 
from Parder to Milo with the same 
combination adding the extra 
points to bring the game to a tie. 
But Andover was not to be con- 
tained and with less than three 
minutes remaining in the contest 
scored on a 29-yard rollout pass 
play. The extra point failed but 
it made little difference — An- 
dover 20, Bowdoin 14. The Polar 
Cubs played a goed game, but the 
superior condition of the Andover 
team proved too much of an ad- 
vantage to overcome. 




AH Colby needed was a winner 
to bring out the potential foot- 
ball players who weren't partici- 
pating; a sweep last year of its 
three State rivals for the first time 
in forty five years and the State 
title for the first time in seventeen 
years resulted in a turnout at 
spring practice far larger than 
anything Colby has seen in some 
years. So far this year Colby has 
split in their first four games, win- 
ning against Brandeis and Wil- 
liams, then losing badly to. a 
strong Springfield team and just 
being edged out by Trinity last 
week. 2822. 

The potential that Coach Bob 
Clifford has to work with this year 
is similar to that of a year ago 
when the Mules won five of their 
seven games. Of twenty-three let- 
termen, thirteen remain, six of 
the thirteen are starters. 

It was necessary to replace de- 
parted auarterbacks Al Rogan and 
Mark Brown at the beginning of 
the season: Coach Clifford wa* 
fortunate in coming up with two 
more than adequate replacements. 
Both Ken Bee and Kent Davidson 
handle the signal calling nicely as 
well as being good passers and 
constant running threats. 

The problem at center brought 
about by the graduation of Tons 
Connors was ably filled by two in- 
dividuals. Jim Bridgeman and 
Gerry Parker, who since there is 
little to choose between them, have 
been sharing the position. 

The hopes of the team rest pri- 
marily upon the shoulders of end 
Pete Cavari. one of the East's toe 
receivers last year (26 receptions 
for 401 yards). Dave Fowler. S 
standout guard, and Bob Nigro, 
the workhorse fullback who car- 
ried 32 times last year in Colby's 
final game (in which they defeated 
Bates 25-18). Rounding out the 
first team are end Bob Burke, 
tackles Pete Berman and Wes Jor- 
dan, guard Bill Clough. and half- 
back Bruce Kingdon. who came 
up from last year's undefeated 
freshman team and who. incident- 
ly, has been looking real good so 
far this year, along with Herman 
Smith. The latter two last season 
scored 106 points in four games for 
the frosh. Wayne Fillback has 
been seeing a great deal of ac 
tion. recently starting as left 
halfback One of the chief hopes 
of the team, co-captain George 
Rhoden, a 175 pound halfback, who 
averaged five yards per carry last 
year was lost as a shoulder separ- 
ation ended his football career. 
This iniurv han hurt the Mules of 
Waterville as it was felt that the 
lightweight speedster was headed 
toward his finest season when 
forced to the sideline. Both teams 
will be up for this game; look for 
a real close, hard-fought game.

Colorful Procession Precedes James Bowdoin Ceremon 


The radio station la planning a 
more extended broadcasting sys- 
son this year than it ever has be- 
fore. Extensions will reach out 
from every facet of the WBOR 
station: from wider publicity by 
the advertising director, Thomas 
Holland; more mellifluous pro-

irector, David McLean; more pro- 
fessional scheduling, according to 
aptitudes and particular talents, 
by the program director, Richard 
Sawyer; closer news coverage di- 
rected by Herm Segal, and similar 
sports coverage by Thomas Eccles- 
ton; and management of business 
by David White, in conjunction 
with the able and experienced sta- 
tion manager, Glenn Richards. But 
the newest extension will most 
likely be one in time, for there is 
a very good chance that the addi- 
tion of a 1:00 to 3:00 popular hits

the will to keep from falling be- 
hind in the rocket competition, or 
had a sufficiently responsible sense 
of the future to provide an ade- 
quate school system." 

Less Time 

President Elliot urged spend- 
ing less time "lolling in our own 
complacency" and press on to take 
our culture to an intellectual level 
commensurate with our material 
achievement. The domestic prob- 
lems which face us today in the 
form of juvenile delinquency, seg- 
regation he sees as stemming from 
ignorance. Problems arising from 
disease he also feels could be 
solved through proper planning 
and use of the humanists in such 

The greatest test of our western 
culture is yet to come, said Presi- 
dent Elliot. Can we, given food, 
clothing, and shelter, discipline 
ourselves so as to guarantee con- 
tinued advancement. In this our 
great new purpose lays ■ ■ ■ now 
is the time for the humanists to 
come forward. They are the people 
who can give expression devoid 
of the current materialistic over- 
tones seen in the American cul- 

To prevent overriding what T. 
M. Greene called "recognition and 
respect for human diversity" the 
utmost care must be given the 
choice of what ends will be sought, 
Elliot said. The failure to put 
"first things first" would be as dis- 
astrous as ignoring the necessity 
of redefining our plans for the 
future. As a guide to the future 
President Elliot suggested not 
working just to pay for the new 
car, TV or any other materials of 
social status and security. Rather, 
our energies should be directed 
toward the attainment of "intel- 
lectual and aesthetic" ends. 

In conclusion, he reminded the 
gathering that the basic truths 
learned here in the. liberal, human- 
istic atmosphere of college, are de- 
void of the "prejudice and bigotry" 
found in life. Only when the un- 
derstanding of this education is 
turned on "man's inhumanity to 
man" can its value be realized, 
he said. 

Perry's Speech 
(Continued from Page 1) 

But decisions must be made, 
nevertheless. For it is by decision 
that man defines himself. If I de- 
cide to cheat during an exam, 
then I have contributed to my 
definition: I am a cheater. But 
let's look at the other side of the 

Decisions Are Unavoidable 

A little while ago I spoke of 
people who are too lazy to come 
to a decision. Perhaps this is too 
loosely put. For we must realize 
that even our failure to make a 

decision is itself a decision, and a 
mighty crucial one. Even if I say: 
"Oh well, someone else can at- 
tend to this." I am still not es- 
caping a decision. Rather I have 
just decided not to decide on an 
issue and have thus defined my- 
self as a shirker of responsibility. 
This brings us to the heart of the 
matter: man cannot avoid the fact 
that, whether he wants to or not, 
he defines himself by his decisions 
and acts. If this sounds too exist- 
entialists, may I remind you of 
a more Christian utterance that 
affirms the same thing: "By their 
fruits shall ye know them." Even 
if a person prefers not to face key 
issues and hence becomes labelled 
as conservative, deliberative, or 
simply "one of the boys," he Is 
this way because he has decided 
so. I would now like to illustrate 
my argument with a situation that 
all of us will recognize immedi- 

The Dual Standard 

This fall many fraternities 
throughout the country, in defer- 
ence to long-established tradition, 
have operated their Freshman 
pledging program on a dual stand- 
ard, having as a purpose the ex- 
clusion of certain minority groups. 
And the reasons for this have not 
varied a great deal: It would be 
bad for alumni relations: the na 
tional would not like it; and per- 
haps the most common one: since 
there are plenty other good men 
in the class, why become Involved 
in a mess which may cause some 
inconvenience later on? 

It seems that the world con- 
fronts each individual with cer- 
tain problems at different stages 
of hig life. Here at Bowdoin a few 
weeks ago we again had the op- 
portunity to act upon a problem 
which for a long time has opposed 
our ideas of social justice. It was 
up to us to decide either to face 
the issue squarely or to let it ride 
and leave it for the next genera- 
tion of Bowdoin men: We know 
how the question was decided in 
the various houses. On the whole 
the question was not, I submit, 
faced honestly and responsibly. < 

Unfortunately we do not live 
forever on this earth. Indeed, as 
the seniors now realize more acute- 
ly than formerly, our stay at 
Bowdoin is also limited. We now 
have to move on and make room 
for those who will follow: those 
who will benefit from our im- 
provements and who will be re- 
stricted by our failures to pro- 
gress. Bowdoin College, as well as 
our individual selves, has been de- 
fined by what we have done and, 
more specifically, by what we have 
not done. 

To me the exclusion of a person 
from a Bowdoin fraternity on the 
basis of alleged personal antag- 
onisms is usually not valid, es 
pecially in view of the virtual Im- 
possibility of judging the worth 
of a man on the basis of a brief 
conversation — which Is all that 
our system allows. Therefore I 

would say, at the risk of over- 
stating my point, that every re- 
sponsible house should make an 
attempt to pledge an "outsider" 
even If they have no immediate 
liking for him. It is largely a 
question of ideals. And when we 
shrink from these ideals, when we should 
shirk our prerogative and respon- 
sibility of meeting an important 
issue because of threatened dis- 
comfort — for that is essentially 
what It is— then I suggest that 
something is radically wrong. 

Bowdoin And Segregation Classes 
If I may briefly digress ... I 
don't Intend this as a polemic 
against national fraternities, and 
recognize that they do have cer- 
tain advantages, remote as they 
usually seem. However, I do sug- 
gest that it Is time for us to look 
into the actual situation and into 
our own souls and to ask a few 
questions: What are the benefits 
of being a national fraternity? 
Well, perhaps it is a propaganda 
advantage to dazzle the unsus- 
pecting Freshman when the situ- 
ation occurs, as it has at Bowdoin. 
in which some houses are national 
and some aren't. But isn't it about 
time that we become more criti-

houses did not see fit to admit ■ 

the*e candidates. Today we see dore Anthony Perry 60, 
the matter differently. It Is im- 
portant to ask why w e do. Is it 
not because, between then and 
now, some individuals had the in- 
itiative to see the problem a.'d 
to do something about it? 

Students Must Choose 

But when I say that the col- 
lege may take the matter Into 
its own hands if the students 
don't take the initiative, I don't 
mean that the students should act 
for the sake of acting, as if to do 
themselves freely what they would 
be forced to do eventually, and 
only In order to get some of the 
credit. This would be doing the 
right thing for the wrong reason. 
My general point. In summary, is 
not that each fraternity should 
vote to abollsn segregation clauses

Fits-Gerald ^^_^__ 

A native of St. Louis. Fitz-Ger- 
ald attended the Philadelphia Mu- 
seum School and. after five years 
of Array service, studied and 
taught at Washington University. 
He has since taught at the St. 
Louis Country Day School, where 
he was head of the art department, 
and at Beloit College. Since 1954 
he has lived in Castine, where he 
has devoted himself entirely to 
sculpture. He has previously ex- 
hibited at St. Louis, Chicago, Phil- 
lips Exeter Academy, the Mar- 
garet Brown Gallery in Boston,

past several years he has taught 
privately and painted seriously in 
his Brookline studio. His works 
have been shown throughout the 
country, and he has been honored 
with several one-man shows.

"The work of both of these men 
In pervaded by awareness of the 
wonder of the Creation," he said. 
"Fitz-Gerald perhaps emphasizes 
more the variety of life while Ja- 
cobson celebrates its unity, but 
neither speaks of the one to the 
exclusion of the other."

Jackson To Headline Annual 


Polar Ice Capades Saturday 

Canadian and North American 
Senior Men's Champion skater 
Donald Jackson will be the fea- 
tured performer of the 1959 Polar 
Ice Caoades of the Skating Club 
of Boston to be held at the Col 
lege Arena at 7:30 p.m. on Satur- 
day, October 31, as part of Alum- 
ni Day, Dan MacFayden, Director 
of the Arena, announced today. 

Jackson heads up an outstand- 
ing cast of young figure skaters 
who will appear in the ice show, 
including such standouts as Brad 
ley Lord, a member of last year's 
World Team: Maribel Owen and 
Dudley Richards. Eastern Senior 
Pair Champions; Laurence Owen, 
National Junior Ladies' Champion 
and Eastern and New England 
Senior Ladies' Champion; Frank 
Muckian. Lorraine Hanlon, Chris-

show in Boston last winter and 
also skated at the College a year 
ago on Alumni Day. 

Jackson, a member of the Tor- 
onto Cricket, Skating and Curling 
club, is considered to be one of 
the outstanding free skaters of 
the day. He has created a sensa- 
tion in skating circles with his 
vigorous style and in particular 
for his ability to do the more dif- 
ficult jumps with amazing ease and 
buoyancy. He is the only skater 
today to do the delayed double 
Salchow jump. 

Carl de Suze. a 1938 graduate 
of the College who is well known 
for his illustrated travel lectures 
as well as for his radio and tele- 
vision programs over Boston sta- 
tions, will be master of cere- 
monies for the production. 

Montgomery Wilson, Director of 
the Ice Chips, will serve as both 
director and producer for the 
Alumni Dav show. His record as

been equalled in Canadian or 
North American competition. He 
was champion and undefeated for 
12 years.

became permanent at the Psi U 
house last Thursday night as the 
brothers honored "Doc" Lincoln 
with a banquet and presentation 
of his portrait. The portrait an 
oil by Edythe Lawes of Bruns- 
wick, hangs over the dining-room 
mantlepiece, a tribute to the Doc- 
tor's long service to Psi Upsilon 
and Bowdoin. 

Doctor Charles S. F. Lincoln. 
•91, is a well known and beloved 
figure on campus. He has served 
his two academic interests long 
and well and, as he said in his 

typically modest acceptance speech 
Thursday night, "I will try to 
continue to be of service to the 
fraternity and to the college." 

The portrait was purchased 
from Miss Lawes through the ef- 
forts of Winger West, Tim Ellis

shape of Admiral MacMillan's 
auxiliary schooner BOWDOIN. 

Among the guests will be the 
distinguished Bowdoin scholar Wil- 
mot Brookings Mitchell '90. He is 
the Edward Little Professor of 
Rhetoric and Oratory, Emeritus, a 
chair now held by Professor Her- 
bert Ross Brown. Professor Mit-

Some Limitations On 
Committee Activities 
Accepted By Council 

Two motions limiting the activi- 
ties of the Orientation Committee 
were passed by the Student Coun- 
cil at their weekly meeting Mon- 
day night. 

The changes in the committee's 
role were made to insure that it 
would not be able to "centralize" 
the orientation procedures in the 
individual fraternities. 

The motions stated that: 1) any 
issue brought by the committee 
before the Pledge Kings shall have 
been discussed previously and ap- 
proved by the orientation chair- 
men of each house, and 2) any 
matter decided against by the Stu- 
dent Council shall not be discussed 
by the Orientation Committee or 
th e Pl e dg e Kmga. 

Joseph Frary, ATO councillor, 
proposed the motion. 

Also announced at the meeting 
were progress reports by the ATO 
delegate on the elimination of their 
discriminatory membership clause 
and the council's lecture commit- 
tee, plans for election of new offi- 
cers at the next meeting Monday 
night, and rules stating that 
^houses must have chaperons to 
stay open until 2:00 a.m. Saturday 
night and that a policeman must 
be in attendance. 

The ATO's stated that a deci- 
sion to do away with their dis- 
criminatory clause was made at 
a chapter officers' meeting. TYiis, 
they said, will probably be ap- 
proved next June by their national 

Possible lecturers were an- 
nounced as: W. H. Auden. Sher- 
man Adams. Robert Kennedy, 
Louis Strauss. Eric Fromm, Judge 
Liebowitz. Adlai Stevenson, and 
Clement Atlee. 

The requirement of having a 
■policeman in attendance at house- 
parties is presumably to reduce 
the number of thefts. 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The council 
action to deter possible over-cen- 
tralization of orientation is a fit- 
ting climax to a problem with 
which the paper was greatly con- 

Change Asked 
By Committee 

A subcommittee to the commit- 
tee appointed by President James 
S. Coles for "proposing the se- 
quence of events for the College 
Commencement" has recently sub- 
mitted its report. A careful inspec- 
tion of the schedule of events, and 
the jockeying of suggested im- 
provements and rearrangements 
into sequences, has materialized 
into a smoothly coordinated com 
mencement week-end, where the 
pattern of events and times ought 
to coincide with the interests of 
all participating groups. 

The report of the subcommittee 
is presented below, along with 
their "calendars," for the perusal 
of everyone interested and con- 

To the Members of the Govern- 
ing Boards, the Alumni Council, 
and selected alumni: 

In April, 1958, a committee com- 
prising members of the Governing 
Boards, the Faculty, and the 
Alumni of Bowdoin College was 
appointed to consider the pattern 
of Commencement activities at 
Bowdoin College and to prepare 
suggestions and recommendations. 
This action was taken because of 
the development of a conflict of 
interest between returning Alum- 
ni, on the one hand, and the fami- 
lies of graduating seniors, on the 
other. Other factors which have 
affected the situation are the pres- 
ence of increasing numbers of wo- 
men at Commencement, the 
changes in transportation, which 
now depends almost entirely on 
the use of family automobiles, and 
the unfortunate separation of Bac- 
calaureate Service from the re- 
mainder of the present program. 

The membership of the Com- 
mittee was as follows: 

From the Governing Boards: 
John H. Halford '07. Chairman, 
John W. Frost "04. Gilbert M. El 
liott '25. Maj. Gen. Wallace C. 
Philoon '05, Dr. Rufus E. Stetson 
'08; From the Faculty.: Dean Ken- 
drick, ex officio, Seward J. Marsh 
'12, then Alumni Secretary, ex 
officio. Mr. Morrell, Professors 
Christie and Geoghegan, Greason, 
Kamerling. Little, Storer and Mr.

Following a meeting of that 
committee, a subcommittee was 
appointed under the Chairmanship 
of Mr. E«iQtt,Jn April. 1959, the 
subcommittee prepared a suggest- 
ed sequence for Commencement 
Week. A copy of this suggested 
schedule it attached, with com- 
ment at submitted to me. 

Before this is considered fur- 
ther, it seems desirable to sound 
the opinion of a small group of 
alumni. Give the committee some 
indication as to whether the pro- 
posed schedule is likely to be re- 
ceived favorably should it be 
adopted by mall:

Sub-Committee Report 

Proposed Sequence of Events for 
Bowdoin College Commencement 

"It would be expected that the 
activity Saturday noon would be 
the high point of Interest for re- 
turning Alumni. We would look for 
a high degree of participation in 
the parade of classes and would 
plan a dinner program with the 
familiar Saturday menu but with 
the speaking program directed en 
tlrely to the alumni, including an 
address by a distinguished guest 
and a report by the President on 
"The State of the College," which 
might be given in full without suf 
fering from competition from other 
speakers or the contagious urge to 
get out of town as" soon as pos- 
sible, which has hampered recent 
Commencement Dinners."

It might be noted that in some 
cases the publicity was not all that 
it could have been, and yet an in-

is bearing almost the total burden 
of publicity in spite of repeated 
efforts to obtain more assistants. 

It certainly seems unfortunate 
that more students have- not avail- 
ed themselves of such fine oppor- 
tunities, but mine is an inquiry as 
to why this- is so. Is it because 
Bowdoin men feel that they have 
a sufficient knowledge of public 
affairs and have nothing to gain 
by attendance? Are Bowdoin men 
merely majoring in government 
and economics as a necessary re- 
quirement for graduation? Do 
those who are majoring in other 
fields feel that a knowledge of pub- 
lic affairs is of no consequence, 
that one's duties as a citizen are 
not important? Do undergraduates 
as a whole or in part feel that 
they "haven't got time" for broad- 
ening their knowledge of the so- 
cial sciences? 

I certainly invite any theories or 
personal statements that would 
lend light to this situation.

Manuscripts Of One 
Act Plays Are Due 
Before January 11 

The 26th annual contest for stu- 
dent-written one-act plays is spon- 
sored by the Masque and Gown, 
which offers a trophy to the win- 
ning playwright, and cash prizes 
of $25 to the winning playwright, 
$15 to the runner up, and $10 
each to the outstanding student 
actor, director, and designer. 

Manuscripts for this contest 
must be submitted (if possible, in 
triplicate) before Monday, Jan- 
uary 11, signed with a pseudonym 
and accompanied by a sealed en- 
velope containing the playwright's 
actual name. These manuscripts 
will be read by a panel of faculty 
judges, who will pick the 3 or 4 
plays they consider moat promis- 
ing, during the week of January 
11th. The authors of these plays 
will then pick tbeir directors, de- 
signers, and actors; and the plays 
will be rehearsed for performance 
on March 4th, when a second pan- 
el of faculty judges will award 
the prizes. 

From now until the Christmas 
vaaction. any student interested 
in entering a manuscript may con- 
sult with the Director of Dra- 
matics on ideas for his play, texts

The above statement was taken 
from the text of an editorial re- 
cently printed in the Trinity Tri- 
pod in regard to their campus 
fraternities. As is indicated, the 
editor's main gripe is that frater- 
nities jare not condusive to scholas- 
tic achievements. The argument is 
that the Trinity fraternities are 
old fashioned and they won't con 
form intellectually to the rising 
academic standards. 

Whatever the situation really is 
on campus, the editor did raise 
some thought provoking reasons 
for this dilemma. The main thing 
is thaf fraternities put themselves 
first and the college second. From 
this stems many other varied prob- 
lems which include discrimination 
clauses, hazing, and the standards 
of the potential fraternity man 
in general.

Book Sale, Nov. 34-5 

There will be a Used Book Sale 
held at the First Pariah Church 
Vestry, Bath and Maine Streets, 
on Tuesday and Wednesday, No- 
vember 3rd and 4th, from 10 am. 
to 9 p.m., and on Thursday, No 
vember 5th, from 10 a.m. to 1 pjn. 
There is a wide selection of books 
of all kinds, including recent best- 
sellers, text -books, sets of classics, 
and paper-backed books. Many of 
the books are unusual or out-of- 
print: this is an opportunity for 
people who have been trying un 
successfully to find a particular 
volume to look again. There will 
be special exhibits on the sea and 
sea-faring, and on books by local 
authors. Records — all speeds — 
will be available as well. Prices 
on all bopks and records will be 
very low; it is impossible to come 
away without an armful of real 
bargains, whatever one's needs and 
interests may be. A snack-bar will 
be open during the Sale. 

Proceeds from the Sale will be 
used for educational projects of 
the American Association of Uni- 
versity Women, including the 
Brunswick Area Student Aid Fund 
and fellowships for women from 
foreign countries who are study- 
ing in the United States.

Yale, Rochester Profs 
Visit Campus Lecture 
On Medicine, Sciences 

Professor W. Robert Adams of 
tbe Department of- Pathology at 
Yale University School of Medi- 
cine will visit the College on 
Thursday, November 5 to meet 
members of the faculty in the sci- 
entific held and science majors. 
There will be a meeting at 7:15 in 
Chemical Lecture Room in Cleave- 
land Hall to acquaint those inter- 
ested with the opportunities in 
medical sciences. His topic will be 
"Some Aspects of Virus Infection 
as Revealed with the Electron Mi- 
croscope." Far those interested in 
interviews during the afternoon, 
see Prof. Kamerling. 

Prof. Harold C. Hodge, chairman 
of the Department of Pharmacol- 
ogy at the University of Rochester 
School of Medicine will visit the 
campus on Thursday, December 3. 
At 8:00 p.m. there will be a meet- 
ing for those interested in medical 
science in which he will speak on 
"Fallout. The Biological Problem." 
Prof. Hodge would like to meet the 
science majors to acquaint them 
with the opportunities in the field.

with him should see Prof. Kamer- 

Caaa of 
The U of Virginia appears to he 

having a losing battle against (of 
ail things) obscenity. In the three 
Banc-tarn PWs that I've read, 
there were numerous articles plus 
one editorial on obscenity with 
regard to fraternity house parties 
and campus publications. Here is 
a sample: 

It seems as though there's a 
swinging little combo called the 
"The Hot Nuts" which has been 
singing off-color songs at various 
houseparties. Some straight-arrow 
coeds have been so mortally of- 
fended by this music that they 
have reported the band to the In 
terfraternity Council. The I.F.C. 
discussed the possibilities of bar- 
ring the combo from campus but 
came to the conclusion that the 
fraternities were responsible for 
the choice of songs. Anyway, "Hot 
Nuts" can stay with one provision 
— the fraternities be more dis- 
criminate in their musical requests. 

"Never Too Otd" 

Ypu have to give Morris Spring- 
er /(aged 86) credit. After a tri- 
umphant high school career in 
^Which he was class president, Mor- 
ris has enrolled at B.U. this fall. 
His age in itself is an amazing 
fact but what's even more as 
founding is that he had never been 
In a class room until the age of 
80. At that time, he entered gram- 
mar school and graduated a year 
later. From there, he went to Bos- 
ton Central Evening High School 
and ultimately ended up as a 
frosh at B.U- Morris plans to ma- 
jor in business administration and 
after graduation, open his own 
shop. Some of his friends think 
him a "little foolish" to try to be- 
come educated at his age but as 
he figures it, "I've got lots to gain, 
so, it must be worthwhile. 


In a recent Orient issue, Bill 
Page, copy editor, wrote a pene- 
trating article deriding the cult 
of the well-rounded man. This col- 
umn made such an impact on those 
at Williams College who read it 
that the Williams Record reprint- 
ed it in toto. They feel that Bill's 
statement applied to their own col- 
lege as well as Bowdoin and would 
also like to see the tendency to- 
wards "averageness" be replaced 
by one that is directed towards a 
more suitable "individuality." See

It wm evident to all who witnessed or heard last Saturday's 
State Series opener against Cc'by, that the White gridden liter- 
ally "played their hearts out." and only the Mules' superior 
epeed and depth prevented u» from notching our third victory 
of the season. Our fierce determination and spirit was evident 
from the opening kick-off to the final gun, as we allowed Corby 
minimum yardage, both on the ground, and in the air. Aggres- 
sive tackling and rushing freqeuntly forced Colby fumbles. 

These are two points that might be posed concerning the 
White strategy. The first concerns the disposition of our aerial 
attack. Granted that the long pass was unfeasible because of 
playing conditions, but the short pass could have been quite 
effective against Colby's notroiualy weak pass defense. 

Second, it was early in the fourth period when Colby 
•cored what proved to be its game-winning touchdown. To 
the "grandstand coaches," it was all too obvious that the 
strength and aggressiveness of our first line was slowly waning 
as the Mule backfield leaked through play after play for huge 
yardage. Finally, when Bowdoin took possession of the ball 
after the touchdown, with seven minutes remaining, out entire 
second team was inserted en masse WHY) It was apparent 
that the move would give our first-stringers a long deserved 
■est. But which was the more valuable strategy? To rest all 
the starters concurrently and hope that the substitutes would 
hold the ball for a substantial length of time, or to keep the 
tiring starters on offense, resulting in perhaps a better shot at 
the Colby goal — and a win? Consequently, the second team 
was forced to punt after only four plays. But. when the White 
got the football again, only two precious minutes and eighty 
yards remained I The wiser move would have been to substi- 
tute individuals intermittently and launch that last big offensive! 


Tomorrow, the White will take" on its arcb-rivals, Bates Col- 
lege before arr Alumni Day crowd. This is the last home game, 
and assuredly, the team wiH be out to capture a victory. This 
is also the last opportunity for many of us Jo see the senior 
gridders: George Entin, Bob Kennedy, Terry Sheehaa, Carl 
Smith, Phil Very, John Millar, Joe Carven. Bob Hohlfelder. 
Bob Hawkes. and Jack Condon. These boys ably provided 
the crux of our fine football squad for the '59 season. 

Support Signs 

Last week, a new innovation to student spirit was tested 
and appeared to produce satisfying results. The "classical mu- 
rals" displayed at the Colby rally and before the opening of last 
Saturday's game added much to the drive and determination of 
both the team members and the spectators. In our opinion, 
this practice should definitely be maintained and emphasized 
as an integral part of all ensuing week-end orientation activities 
for all fraternities.

visit our Drive-In for a refreshing snack or meal. 


Cub Gridders 
lose To MCI 

By Bill Benrhofl 

By scoring in the final period, 
Maine Central Institute was able 
to defeat the Bowdoin Polar Cubs 
8-0 for the kerne team's second 
consecutive loss. The touchdown 
drive was spearheaded by alert 
passing and the Maroon's ability 
to sweep the ends. Bowdoin al- 
most scored in the dosing mo- 
ments of the game when halfback 
Jack Milo broke loose for 52 yards 
to the MCI 21, but there the 
White attack bogged down. The 
dreary weather that prevailed 
throughout the contest seemed to 
indicate what was ahead for the 
Polar Cubs. 

In the first uarter the teams 
appeared evenly matched as no 
long drives were instigated. The 
second quarter opened with Bow- 
doin in possession on their own 30. 
The home team at last were able 
to get a march underway with 
two consecutive first downs, one 
on a 16-yard sprint by Milo, but 
then the line tailed to hold, and 
Jack Parker, the quarterback, was 
thrown for a loss. The next play 
was a smooth Parker-to-Milo com- 
pletion to the MCI 40. but four 
yards were still needed for the 
first down. On the following play 
a pass interception put the Ma- 
roon again into possession, and 
they began running effective re- 
verses and sweeps to the Bowdoin 
32, where their attack was halt- 
ed when the hard-charging Cub 
line swamped the quarterback at 
midfleld. The invaders were forc- 
ed to punt, and Parker returned 
to the 45. Again activity became 
static and the first half ended 0-0. 
End Sweep* Ruin Bowdoin 

After punting to Bowdoin early 
in the third uarter, the visitors re- 
ceived a break but were unable to 
capitalize due to the stiffening of 
the defender's line. When Bow- 
doin was forced to punt, the snap 
from center cleared punter Milo's 
head and rolled to the 20, where 
he recovered It and on a fine run- 
back brought the ball out to the 
44, still short of the first down. 
This boner seemed to demoralize 
the Bowdoin suad as their defense 
suffered a relapse. Six consecutive 
end sweeps gave MCI a first down 
on the Bowdoin 8, where a reverse 
and a line buck netted them only 
2 yards. Another sweep made it 
third and 2, but a determined Po- 
lar Cub line held and took over on 
downs on the 1-yard line. A poor 
Bowdoin punt put the visitors in 
possession on the home team's 25, 
and this time the visitors were 
able to tally. 

Beginning the fourth quarter, a 
penalty gives tbem a first down on 
the 14, where two short passes ov- 
er center were good to the six. On 
the following play a right-end 
sweep scorea with a
